Brunswick Schools Canceling Classes Until Next Tuesday

Posted By on Tue, May 21, 2013 at 1:26 PM


Due to a rapidly spreading "Norovirus" — stomach flu supreme — the Brunswick school district is canceling all classes until next Tuesday. Friday and Monday were already scheduled days off for Memorial Day, but this shit is crazy.

Evidently, absences have been piling up in recent days. Monday, class was called off at all 10 of the elementary and middle schools. Fox 8 reports that the symptoms have now spread to the high school.

Here's the craziest (and most suspicious) part: ALL REMAINING FINAL EXAMS HAVE BEEN CANCELED AS WELL. Here's the official word from the district.

The remaining senior exams have been canceled with the exception of the following: Seniors who need to pass a final in order to pass a class, and seniors who want to take a final to improve a semester grade. Those seniors MUST report to school on Tuesday, May 28th at the regularly scheduled class period time to take their finals. All others will be exempted from the final.

This is either a very severe strain of diarrhea or an ingenious con by the Brunswick senior class.
