Grantosa Drive Elementary School at 4850 N. 82nd St. in Milwaukee.

I am writing today to express my deepest regret for Grantosa Drive School.

That was the opening of a letter written by a long-serving teacher at the northwest side school to members the Milwaukee School Board. She went on to explain why she felt the need to use the word heartbreak. Five other school staff members sent letters to the school describing the alarming state of the school.

18 other school staff signed a letter asking the school board for help regarding extreme concerns of climate, culture, and safety at our school.

According to the record, the school board and Milwaukee Public Schools administrators received mild responses to the string of intense letters. It is difficult to tell the truth from an outsider beyond that record. My request to speak with the principal and visit the school was denied.
