19 MI Schools Close Over Threats, Doomsday

From the Detroit NBC affiliate, WDIV-TV:

Michigan schools cancel classes due to potential threats, end of world rumors

Schools in Lapeer, Genesee, Sanilac counties cancel classes for remainder of year due to potential threats of violence, end of world rumors

Dec 20 2012

DETROIT – Nearly a dozen school districts in Michigan have decided to cancel classes for the rest of the week.

Actually, the total numbers of schools closed turned out to be 19.

It has nothing to do with the weather. School leaders say rumors about the end of the world and potential threats of violence are partially behind the cancelations.

The Lapeer Community Schools district will be closed Thursday and Friday. Leaders in that district say there is no credible threat to students, just rumors, but the rumors have caused major distractions in the classroom.

We don’t recall schools ever closing due to "distractions" when we were kids.

The following Lapeer County schools and school districts will be closed Thursday and Friday:

– Chartfield Academy
– Dryden Community Schools
– Imlay City Schools
– Lapeer Community Schools
– North Branch Area Schools

The following Genesee County school districts will be closed Thursday and Friday:

– Genesee Intermediate School District
– Goodrich Area Schools
– Lake Fenton Community Schools
– Linden Community Schools

Marlette School District, in Sanilac County, also will be closed Thursday and Friday.

Classes will resume after winter break, which means students in Lapeer County will not be back in school until Jan. 7.

That is some prolonged ‘winter’ vacation.

Meanwhile, Michigan’s schools, especially those in the Detroit area, are some of the worst performing in the country.

    I can no longer comment on the tyranny by the mentally disturbed over those trying to play by the rules.
