I hear from my children (who are also WMS students)that some of Wednesday's "absent" students were taken to Lake Compounce and other recreational places. The parents involved are snubbing their noses at the school's authority. Their poor babies might be traumatized if they don't go to an amusement park ASAP. What misplaced values!
Although my kids are attending school, I have no quarrel whatsoever with parents who do not want their children to be exposed to swine flu and, so, they are keeping their children at home. As long as they are not at the mall or the supermarket!

WMS parent: the kids (and staff) look forward to that trip!! Get a grip... Middle school is just NOT that important...especially in June! The staff is burned out and can't wait to get out of there, too!(at least there's a decent principal...good riddens DOCTA SLONE)

stfu WMS parent. Quassy was sick when I went and I would have been pissed if it got cancelled too. they didn't just assign a different date to the trip, they completely cancelled it.
the stupid part is the kids who went to school actually had to do work? I know if i were still in the school, i would have protested that.

WMS parent is right. If the kids could even possibly be sick, they need to be isolated. Not out getting hundreds of other people infected.
They could have postponed the trip.
And students who are in school should do work. That's what school is for. It's not even like WMS kids do finals, they just have a good time at the end of the year.
