My child had perfect attendance. There is no excuse not to. I don't care how sick they was or if it was contagious or not, they were going to school. And they did.

It does not matter if your child is sick, dying or half dead from the croup. They needs to be in the school.

Hey Curious, kindergarten DOES participate, that's if they can read! My child did. Duh, everyone gets the opportunity to do the reward. It is up to the individual child if they choose to do what they are supposed to do.
Good grief

Omg! Stop it already! This thread was about an ACCIDENT. Not for the whining about who did and did not participate. Just be thankful children did not seriously get hurt.

How is the teacher and aid doing? Does anyone know if they are okay?

It is very clear that no one would have been injured if this bounce house was not at the school to begin with. Should we start to have the children play with loaded handguns as well?

Teacher was unconscious and taken to the hospital. People are saying she was critically injured.

Since this was a work related injury, the costs of care will be paid by the school. This will be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Where is that money coming from?

You call yourself a responsible parent? You are the reason some of these illnesses are spread. You sent a child to school sick & contagious... What a piece of shit you are.

The money came out of the AR fund. The kids were supposed to go bowling, but then we found out that the bowling alley had closed.
Let it go.

Come to a PTO meeting and find out where funds come from and how they are spent.

Hey Ridiculous! To my knowledge, kindergarteners aren't included in AR. Since my husband and I own property and are employed - we are doing our part in fundraising by paying taxes. My child did attend school regularly with the exception of the days that she was sick and could not attend. You shouldn't assume someone is an uninvolved parent who doesn't help their child read or encourage good attendance simply because they asked why a bouncy house was at a school. My child does read & does go to school!
Hey Curious! I never, anywhere in my post, stated that anyone was an uninvolved parent, did I? Please show me where I did. Maybe you shouldn't assume something untrue about someone else's post, should you? Also, you are wrong about kindergarten and AR. My child participated in AR, received a certificate of accomplishment, and is in kindergarten. My child also jumped in the bouncy houses that day as well. I also work, as does my husband, and we own our home and pay taxes like responsible adults do. I'm not sure what your point is, but your attitude sucks. My children don't go to school when they're sick, either. This had nothing to do with fundraising. It was a reward for meeting reading goals and perfect attendance. Make sure you read correctly before you assume anything. Weren't you ever taught what happens when you assume??

The teacher was NOT unconscious. Are you stupid or what? Comparing a bounce house to a loaded gun is the dumbest analogy I've ever heard. I bet you keep your children locked up inside all summer don't you? DO you go on vacations? To carnivals? To swimming pools? Well guess what, genius? Accidents happen EVERYWHERE!! Go crawl back in your bomb shelter and protect yourself from the evil bounce houses.

It was the way it was insinuated - the tone of your post.

That explain the rampant spread of viruses, flu, pink eye, etc. Believe it or not- there are circumstances when your child really SHOULD stay home from school.

Ok. Really didn't know. I guess some teachers promote AR more than others.

The teacher was knocked unconscious. She was alert when ems got on the scene. Insurance, which every place of employment has to carry will cover a work place injury.

Several years ago a child broke his leg when he ran in front of a swing. This injury would not have happened if the swings were not there in the first place. Guess WE had to pay thousands for that too. Oh, before anyone tries to blame a teacher for this, the child was being watched, just didn't follow the safety rules.

We are told that we are to have our children in school every single day no matter what, regardless of if they are sick or not. Only those with absolutely perfect attendance are rewarded, and that means NO sick days off.

You are the one who is a "piece of shit" as you term it, for keeping your child at home while sick. That is not the goal. The goal is 100% perfect attendance. Get it straight!

The same principal applies here. It is not the school's fault. The teacher should have been following safety rules, which state that one must stay out of the path of errant airborne bouncy houses.

What are you trying to hide?

If a child scrapes his knees falling off the swings, then no one is seriously injured.

Here we had a severe accident where at least one adult teacher was knocked unconscious, paramedics responded, and the teacher was taken to the hospital.

You keep saying it was nothing, you say that the teacher was not unconscious when she was, you just lie and tell people to stop talking about it.

What is really going on here? What are you hiding?
