If the classroom is important, then . . .

Why do they mow the lawn outside my classroom window when I'm trying to give a test?  It seems to me that lawns can be mowed before 8:00 am or 3:30 pm.  Why do they call my room to tell me kids have to leave for appointments?  Shouldn't the kids have to remember their own appointments?  Whey do they have announcements blaring over the loudspeaker during class time?  Why can students be late to class because they have a message at the office?  Why is lunch the only time that can't be altered during the school day?  They tell me that classroom is important, but I can't think of a single thing that someone who doesn't teach won't use to warrant a classroom interruption., but the classroom is important.
