we're living a horror show folks
The parents should keep their kids home from school until the "staff" is canceled. Never should this happen. And who exactly is included in this "staff" who made this decision? It's a conveniently vague group at which to point the finger of blame now that this has blown up in their faces. Name names. Come forward and own it!!
And as for superintendent holmen, the longest paragraph in that letter was about where he was on 9/11/01, what he was doing and how he felt about it. NOBODY CARES! Hey, holmen, this is not about YOU! It's about what you and your "staff" did NOW and how offended most people were by it.
And he writes, "As we move forward, we will review the processes used to make such determinations, and ensure appropriate protocols are in place for similar decisions to be made in the future." There doesn't need to be a "review." 9/11 was a horrific attack on our country that killed almost 3,000 people. It needs to be commemorated every year so it isn't forgotten and/or, God forbid, repeated. And it especially should be a big lesson taught in our schools! Our American Taxpayer funded schools
If members of the "staff" were fearful the other team might
be offended for whatever reason, then let that other team decide whether to participate or not! The entire "staff" all the way up to the superintendent need to be fired ... partly because they deserve it and partly to set a precedent because this type of action should not be tolerated anywhere in this country!
The students should start a red white and blue day every week in school. Or maybe every day. Just all do it. Period.
