Yesterday we went back to school after a three day vacation + the Sabbath.
The first thing I noticed was that the computer wasn’t properly covered by the brown tablecloth I use and that the monitor was on. Odd – I’m pretty careful about checking the computer before I leave for the day. I turned on the computer and saw that it worked. Felt relieved.
Then I noticed some items weren’t where I left them. The metal closet door was bent slightly out of shape but its doors were locked.
THEN I discovered that the rectangular windows, above the whiteboard were open. They are sliding windows so the whole length of the whiteboard (a small one, by the way) was open. I never open those windows. The other ones, at normal height have bars on them.
FINALLY, I discovered that the side of the computer’s CPU was just leaning against the computer and some cut wires were on the floor. They had a “thingie” that said “speakers” on them. My volunteer hazarded a guess that the sound card was taken. Couldn’t check as I don’t have speakers connected to the computer.
I taught straight through all day yesterday and also needed to collect my emotions before going to report the incident. I must admit that my first thought was : Oh, NO! They’ll take my computer away!
I reported it this morning, to the woman in charge of the computers at school. She just said that she would send the technician to check the computer. No drama at this stage. Whew!
We’ll see what happens next…
