Perhaps the empty buildings could be used to house the homeless. I just hope the children don't run into them though. It would be awful for the kids to see how things really are. Like they did at the Dundalk Rec Center. By the way, with the internet available why do we still bus kids to these buildings each day to be taught the same things they could get on their computers at home?

They are doing it to spite you. Seriously, the whole system, every decision, made solely to tick you off. Search your heart, you know this to be true.

I respect your opinion, but believe children should be exposed to those less fortunate who are looking for warmth or a roof over their heads. They may be motivated to reach out and help. School is more than just the 3 Rs. Socializing, interacting with diversity, teamwork and respect for others opinions and ideas are just some of the other benefits. Erring on the side of safety is prudent. Thank you.

Shocker. Oh look, it might snow 2 inches. Shut down the town.

"Shut down the town." - hilarious! Please don't copyright that slogan...I want to use it.

Patricia, I must partially disagree. From what I have seen, "interacting with diversity" is not necessarily a benefit to young impressionable kids.

Kind of forcing the opportunity to brag, eh Paul?

It's like being five years old again and it is still a week before Christmas. Also throw some humor at the BCPS, they don't laugh enough. But I promise to stop, maybe not. I assume M. you are not going?

Absolutely. What parent wouldn't be willing to let their kid hang around a potential drug user, rapist or other type of criminal because their kid was let out of school early?
