Md. School Sorry For Asking Kids To Bring Knives

EMMITSBURG, Md. (AP) — An elementary school principal in Emmitsburg is apologizing to parents for a letter asking students to bring knives to school.

The letter was an appeal for items that could be sent in care packages to U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Emmitsburg Elementary School Principal Kathryn Golightly told The Frederick News-Post on Wednesday that the school’s Parent Teacher Association compiled the list. She says she should have read it more carefully before approving it for distribution.

Frederick County Public Schools policy prohibits students from having weapons of any kind on school property.

    What a fool, She obviously lives in Kansas with Dorothy & the tin man, Lion & Scarecrow.

    It would have been ok if the kids played lacrosse.

  4. No kidding says:

    Yeah I hope the students did not bring shoes or dental floss for the care packages, because some parents think that they are just as dangerous as knives.

  5. LOL says:

    Those care packages are ok in Easton Md if they are being sent to a lacrosse player.
