    Unbelievable. The kids have been so excited about outdoor lab next week. It's a rite of passage for the kids in our county. Every year the 6th graders go out into mountains to a facility for school. The do archery and study the environment, look at the stars at night, etc. Well we just got a voice message from the priincipal saying it's been canceled due to a safety threat to one of the staff members. Is it just Colorado or is the world going mad?

    That really hoovers, ML. Our sixth graders have a similar camp, and it's such a great experience for them.

    Are they rescheduling or refunding? I 'd be all over the principal on Monday morning.

    Ours was canceled several years ago when our school district budget failed and they never put it back in. Oldest boy enjoyed it, daughter refused to go and it was gone by the time the others came along. Youngest will be a 6th grader next week.

    It's a shame because the kids have so few opportunities like this. My sons go to Scout camp (actually, the two middle guys work there now).
