"Some teachers are disappointed that kids, in their opinion, were being irresponsible," Fraass said.

THAT'S WHAT THEY DO!

IT'S ALL THEY DO!

Josh Ziehl of Owl Cartel Event Productions told the Sun-News that he was hired as DJ for the event. He estimated that between 100 and 150 students attended.

When will the US start dealing with the cartels in New Mexico??

Ecclesiastes assures us that there is a time for every purpose under heaven. A time to laugh, and a time to weep. A time to mourn, and there is a time to dance! And there was a time for this law, but not anymore!!

From TFA "hundreds of Mayfield High School students may have attended the event"

There's no parking way a bunch of teens actually kept that a secret.  I'm waiting for the follow-up revealing what parents and teachers helped them book the venue or otherwise knew and ignored it.

I thought this was going to be another story about the privately run whites-only proms in the South. I'm surprisingly relieved.

Subby, I'll be brief. The issue here is not whether we broke a few rules, or took a few liberties with our female party guests - we did. But you can't hold a whole fraternity responsible for the behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals. For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole fraternity system? And if the whole fraternity system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our educational institutions in general? I put it to you, Subby - isn't this an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but I for one am not going to stand here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America. Gentlemen!

That's very weird. I was told repeatedly by conservative farkers that there was no danger in sending students back to school and that we could totally trust children of all ages not to act like the walking disease vectors that they are.

Very weird. Must just be a fluke.

It's almost like they knew it was gonna happen, and just wanted to be able to blame someone else for the deaths while they got what they wanted. That happens a lot weirdly enough.

I work in a college bar. If I don't chase everyone down constantly, pandemic rules don't get followed. These kids don't give a fark

I was that age in the eighties, with all the drunk cop, out of control cops, vengeance cop, nothing in the fridge but sour milk, chinese takeout remnant and one single beer reserved for quenching your unrelenting thirst for getting shiat done cop. Do I stutter Benders, Ghostbusters and Ferris Buellers, following the rules was not a particularily well observed virtue. So I cant honestly vouch for what would have been my behavior in this situation. A very interesting exercise in self discovery.

We are missing the big picture here: They hired a DJ, an entity who assumes relevancy by playing copies of real recording artist's songs without paying royalties.And then TFA gives us his contact info. Yes, the prom was a stupid idea. Maybe the parents thought the COVID bugs couldn't find them if they kept it a secret. Never underestimate the stupidity of large groups of parents.

I really do feel sorry for the kids that have and are missing out on numerous school events including prom and in person graduation.  That said it is a necessary thing and the sacrifices we make will get this pandemic over the quicker.

To be fair, a 150-student "secret prom" isn't exactly the same situation as a reopened school.  But if they're conservatives of the anti-mask type (who am I kidding, is there another kind these days?), They probably weren't concerned about operating schools under CDC-recommended safety advisory conditions, either.

Whereas kids in 1944 missed out on graduation because they joined the army on their 18th birthdays and died on the beaches of Normandy.  Having to stay home instead of renting an overpriced tuxedo is not a tragedy or a hardship.

Students socializing is an implicit part of reopened school.
Students throwing parties that they're not supposed to is an implicit part of students socializing.

The DJ is an asshole, he's 'pleased' to see large groups of people... that he's facilitating super spreader events.  People like him will watch the world burnt to the beat if they can make a buck.

Remember back in the day when there was such an uproar about blah people and teh gheys attending proms, so parents would organize an "alternative party" and invite all but the outcasts?

This infrastructure still exists.

Rob4127: This was in Las Cruces, where people responded to public health orders with "#IfIGotItYouGotIt":

Las Cruces Public Schools spokeswoman Kelly Jameson confirmed that a school district employee was among the people depicted at the gathering. The employee reportedly contacted Superintendent Karen Trujillo and apologized for the "indiscretion." [lcsun-news.com]

Then this happened: Karen Trujillo, Las Cruces schools superintendent, killed in crash [lcsun-news.com]


MI-5 impressed.

Students throwing parties isn't and implicit part of reopened school.  They can and will do that regardless of whether school is open.

1- Pretty much this.  It is possible that a few more kids heard about the event or attended the event because of the reopening, but I struggle to imagine that this event was not planned long before reopening and would have happened irregardless.

B- This definitely does illustrate once more what I been shouting for months.  School is not a single thing to reopen.  Lumping together institutions from preschool to community college is idiotic and unhelpful.  Go to a preschool, you will see the teachers sing pick up clean up put away, and all the children will respond as hypnotized little marrionettes and clean up the toys.  Go to a high school, the teacher asks them to put things away and they throw garbage and jeer.  Little kids can and will follow instructions.  It doesn't occur to kids to disobey until sometime around middle school.  High schoolers compulsively and reflexively seek to do the opposite of what they are asked.  So the ability to reopen and get kids to follolw rules is correspondingly different, and it is stupid not to account for that in the reopening discussion.  No high school should have reopened.  All the elementary schools should have reopened (maybe only through third  or fourth grades) once they had air filters and ventilation solutions installed.  Stuff in between would depend on teacher vaccination, school district resources and community buy in to the damn rules in addition to ventilation, etc.  But no, a certain fat orange pig politicized the discussion, and no nuance is allowed as a result.  School open or school closed, there is no in between.

Murka Fark Yeah!

Except they weren't doing it when school wasn't open, and they are doing it when school is open, which seems to contradict your statememt;
