Vampires Don't Matriculate

Imagine getting a note from your kid's school that says, "There are no vampires attending this school." That wouldn't be very reassuring would it? Such a note was sent home to parents of Boston Latin students. I'd love to be a fly on the wall of the next PTA meeting because seriously, what was the headmaster thinking?

From the comments I've read, there might to be more possibly going on with this situation, but even so, this all could be a case of wild accusations and rumors flying fast and loose. No matter what, things went screwy at Boston Latin and the kids at the center of this are not going to fare well no matter what they did or didn't do.

I wish I'd gotten a copy of that letter though. It would've made my week.

Read an article about the incident here.

Man, now I feel cheated. The closest we got to rumors like this was in jr. high - there was one bathroom that was always locked and the story went was a girl threatened to kill herself in that bathroom so they had to keep it locked so she wouldn't come back to the campus to commit suicide.

And of course the one where I, the girl who's mom started the first Just Say No program in our district, was on drugs. But that's because I have naturally large pupils and a police officer said a sign of cocaine use was enlarged pupils.

Vampires. Man that would've been a sweet rumor.

That reminds me of that South park episode making fun of the book "Twilight."

wow, if only some rumor other than petty relationship crap was spread like that more often! Would have made school a lot more fun :D
