Jeez, what a bunch of wusses:
The South Lyon Community Schools and Brighton Area Schools were the only districts open in Metro Detroit today as winter keeps the region in its icy grip and students are not happy about it.
Parent Tina Rochowiak said she kept her son home Monday but sent the senior to class today at South Lyon High School. She said her son text messaged her and said students have gathered in a commons area and are refusing to go to class.
Melissa Meister, South Lyon Community Schools’ assistant superintendent of administrative services, confirmed that the students had gathered and said the matter was being addressed. Meister could not say how many students were protesting.
The school is heated. The buses were all running fine. I presume the commons area where the protest happened was heated, too.
Kids these days. But worse, of course, is the parental reaction:
Rochowiak said the district could have let students stay home today without impacting their studies.
“They are ridiculous,” she said. “I kept him home yesterday because I thought it was absolutely ridiculous. Winter is almost over. Give them a break. It is just dumb.”
Thank God my parents weren’t this silly.
