The Lawrence School District is seeking a restraining order against a parent of a Central Junior High School student.

The school district, in a motion filed in Douglas County District Court, is seeking to prevent Carlene Hadl from coming onto the premises of Central Junior High unless asked in writing by the principal or assistant principal.

Other restraints sought by the school district include that Hadl:

Be ordered to leave the school premises after being requested to leave by any school administrator.

Be barred from initiating any communication with any member of the administrative or teaching staff of the school other than the assistant principal, except to report that her child cannot attend school because of illness.

Not withhold her child from school.

The school district alleges that since school began last September, Hadl has "unreasonably interfered with and disrupted the proper operation" of the school by making "excessive visits" to the school to make "extremely unreasonable demands and unfounded accusations." Many of the visits were unscheduled and disruptive to school operations, according to the document file with the court.

The school district claims Hadl has had "emotional outbursts and unwarranated verbal attacks on teachers and administrators" and has made "an excessive number of unreasonably demanding phone calls to the school and to teachers at their home residences." The school district alleges Hadl has threatened to continue with her behavior, including withholding her child from school.

A hearing on the school district's request tentatively is scheduled for 9 a.m. next Wednesday in district court.

Lawrence Supt. Dan Neuenswander said this was the first request of its kind since he became superintentendent in 1984.

Attempt to reach Hadl for comment were not successful.
