Dear New Teachers,
Our children will be missing the second week of school because we are bad parents and are taking them to paradise. They are all smart kids and will not miss a thing, as we all know you will spend the first month reviewing last years' school work and going over the rules and routine. We will think of you as we choose to swim in either the sea or the pool at the 7 bedroom villa which has a staff of 5. Our friends who are from Jamaica will be there with us, along with their 3 kids, so we will get plenty of local tours and history. They even want to take us to the Bob Marley museum. (Who knows what they sell in that gift shop??) We will call it social studies.
The Bad (but happy) Parents
