    if the media would quit making a major deal of the every day bomb threats, it might stop. Also, any day lost to a bomb threat should be made up. Take away more days from summer….that might make the kids stop this sillyness.

      I agree with them having to make up days. We as property tax payers prepay for all these days these kids are out of school, whether it is weather related, or now bomb related. I want my monies worth, or I want some of my tax money back. Just sayin’………I’m not getting return on my investment. Of course, this will never happen and discipline will never happen either for those making the threats.
