Parents keep kids home in protest of 'problem' child
Some parents are letting their kids ditch classes at Ardsley Middle School until a "problem" child is removed.Frustrated parents claim the eighth-grade boy was allowed back to school Monday after making threats against other children, which are rumored to include blowing up homes and the school itself.
Greenburgh police confirm that the boy made "indirect" threats over the weekend and that one parent filed a police report in response.
The parents claim the child's mother serves on the school board, affording the young alleged repeat "offender" special treatment.
"They apparently monitored this child through the course of the day and apparently this was good enough for them," says parent Rob Wootten, who was among parents to attend a Monday meeting with the superintendent.
As classes remain in session, some concerned parents have vowed to keep their children home until the eighth-grader is permanently removed from Ardsley Middle School.
