    Hi Tina Salazar, how time flys since we spoke in October, since your entering into your new position as principal at Akins h.s.My comment is about still using the school , and some areas down stairs for my new film . I always try to get your attention at work , but you are truly busy , very understandable for your highly position at school. If possible , maybe i can get in 5-10 min soon. Speak briefly about the film dates and times I hope to film at school. For sure it will be weekends. Thank you so much for your time and opportunity to shoot some scenes at the school location.. fyi thinking of shooting some scenes early March and after spring break vacation.
