Thank goodness! One less day that all these maniacs will be running wild at seabreeze. They have no reason to be there anyways, wasting taxpayer dollars.

Absolutely brilliant Mr Vargas. I am sure all of the amusement parks and suburban school districts appreciate your help in keeping the violence, danger and criminal activity to near zero during school field trip days.

Plus the kid's really do need the class time.To bad they don't just show up for school when they are supposed to.

It was probably the only day the school had decent attendance. Another freebie. Unreal they were doing this crap in the first place.

I think that if the student gets As & Bs all year ... they should be rewarded.

Not just the city schools, all the schools.

MANY of you don't know this because the news won't report it . The RCSD has FOOD LINK <welfare FOOD> trucks attend every School night Open house , like concerts or teacher / parent meetings . Parents and student get corralled into the parking lot at the end of the events and are given food based on the amt. of people living in the household .

Yeah , ackward .....The kids see it as normal ...Free food at school ...hmmmm Nothing wrong here .

This State is so far gone , it's considered normal to receive welfare at the school .

Great move by the Supt. Doing a much better job than Bizzard did. Understand Bizzard is struggling to keep his job in Chicago. Not surprised.

Instead of taking the field trip away why not make it a reward for doing their job in school. If a kid has passing grades, maintains a attendance record within guidelines, and most importantly has a record of parental involvement for example going to open houses and is in contact with the teacher, and this means both the mother and the Father then the kids deserve to go if not they dont simple as that.

Only flaw in that is any kid that was left behind would have parents screaming discrimination... no matter what the parameters. It's a slippery slope to make rules for people that don't understand or respect them. Vargas made the right decision.

Why not a cash reward, or an ounce of pot?

No I just want the kids to go to school and pass and have BOTH of their parents involved in-their education in my mind that is not to much to ask for anyone.

Nope it wasn't me Jenna,Glass Pilot,Chuck,pig punk or whatever name you are using. Question Zippy, why do you have to keep changing names? Could it be because you were banned using your other name? I noticed that you haven't posted on the other site you like so much under your old name either,why? LOL!! Got to love it when pompass punks get the boot.

We all know what a great job the city teachers are doing... oh wait,,,,, never mind.

Vargas is a moron, as are all the loser leaders of the RCSD. The district is a huge failure.
