more field trips to Costa Rica perhaps?
All of Boston and many states in the country banned school field trips, but our very own Ruth Clay and Melrose School Committee thought these trips were a fine idea, naturally. MHS parents apparently thought so, too. And then we wonder why the wrong things inevitably become the focus of this community! Feathers, "Tommyhawks", you name it, Melrose is a bastion if civilized and well-developed critical thinking!
I don't understand. Are you afraid that your pregnant teen daughter will be bitten by a mosquito?[:|]
Of course the field trips aren't mandatory, but the school committee had a mandatory responsibility to approve or disapprove, and they made the politically easy choice instead of the one that would have been prudent and demonstrated concern for the whole community. If parents and their teens want to frolic in Zika land on their own, go for it. But school officials are supposed to make decisions for the common good. Melrose officials are exempt, it appears.
Trump says he will build a wall AND fifty foot high mosquito netting on top of the wall and have Mexico pay for it.. I'm going to vote for Trump because he says he's great![:-D]
The sad thing is that so many people seem to believe what is, of course, an absurdity!
Think again. The Great Wall of China was a costly miserable failure as was the Maginot Line which was supposed to protect the French from German invaders in WWII.
According to Trump we are. Learn from history: Walls and fixed defensive installations don't work. Go back to history 101. (Okay, we will give you a pass for your lack of historical knowledge because you were a MHS grad..and watch FAUX "News").
