Too soon to send kids back to school after threat

Print Article

Regarding the cyber terrorist threats in the Flathead Valley: Parents are being instructed to send their children back to school Tuesday. I disagree with this plan.

In a “safety first” plan, the administration would instruct all teachers to make homework available through email or postal service, until the terrorist(s) are caught and we are 100 percent sure all involved are behind bars.

Parents, it is ultimately up to you to make a stand for your children. The plan to send students back on Tuesday is horrible planning based on the fact that the terrorist(s) are not behind bars. Goodness!

If you agree with me spread this message, talk to your friends, family and loved ones. We do not need to live in fear but we must be proactive and stand strong for the children in our lives.
