One would surmise from Mr. Buccellato's history, that the only reason he would wish to contain the closing of the facility until Friday, is to give them all time to sell off everything before the state closes them down. It is not, nor ever, has it been about the children.
To believe that parents would actually take referral advice from people complicit in this cover-up, from those that have stolen monies from the families through fraud, one would need to be out of their mind. Another family was just recently scammed out of almost $25,000.00 for fees and deposits, with full knowledge of the financial crisis that would lead to the closing.
No one disclosed anything to the parents. The ORCC never bothered to check the financial viability of this facility, but in all fairness even if the ORCC had, it is apparent that there are several "books," according to several former staff. Heck, the educational consultants get their $4,000.00 hit on the front end and those more unscrupulous get it on the back end, so what do they care.
Simply stated: It is not Mr. Buccelllato's property to sell.
In addition, if the shredding parties have not commenced, do not fret or bother. Many employees have copied documents upon departure as far back as 2005. A fire is not a good idea right now. The artwork is probably on its way to Tahiti.

We are attempting to sell items on campus to make sure that payroll is met If you know anyone interested in purchasing anything on campus, please have them call Mike Smith.Friday is not about the children. More children are scheduled to go home Wednesday. There are several lawsuits that have been filed previously to the announcement of closing citing negligence and fraud. There will be much more.
And that's my take.
