Matija: Shutting down a school because the attendance system is down seems to me 
an indication that the school has it's priorities all wrong.

Micki: I can't help but wonder if in Arizona, it's almost impossible to shut school down because of COVID or staffing shortages, but shutting down because "the computers are down" is acceptable and a sneaky way to keep kids and staff home. I'll be interested in hearing how many days "the computers are down". 

(Drifting) I am so thankful my kids are grown up and don't have little kids of their own yet. So many hard, hard decisions to make as a parent in this day and age. 

(On topic) I do wonder what the parents did during the Sergyar Worm Plague.
