Keep your sick child home

By Zachary Duran

Dear Editor:

I'm writing this in absolute frustration with the parents of this community. If your child is sick, KEEP THEM HOME! You send your little snot-nosed kids to school, and they infect everyone else. Less than a week into the school year, and my daughter is now home sick with something she caught from a sick child with a careless parent. What makes it really hard for her, is that she's worked her tail off to get perfect attendance for the last three years. There aren't many 10-year-olds that completely committed to school, and now her ENTIRE YEAR is ruined. Additionally, what kind of parent would make their child miserable by making them go to school when they're sick? Disgusting.
