From the principal at my son’s school:
I just received final clarification about the President’s Address Tuesday. Per the Superintendent, [the school] will be showing the speech live. If parents do not wish to have their child view the speech, they will need to contact their homeroom teacher. Alternative activities will be in place for those students.
I apologize for the previous email. I am just trying to accommodate all stakeholders at [school].
Principal McPrincipalson, Ed.D.”
What a shit storm over nothing. Wish they would send me a list of those who hold their kids out, though, as I would have reservations about their mental stability and would like to avoid play dates with them.
