“We can’t discuss discipline issues because of right to privacy of students, but I can say there are two sides to every story,” said DCHS Assistant Principal Lynn Garner. “Sometimes people spin things and turn them to make them seem one way, but I cannot discuss anything specific in order to protect the child.”
The incident involved 17-year-old Kendra Turner, a senior at the high school. Turner was in class on Monday morning and said ‘bless you’ after a fellow classmate sneezed. The phrase was listed on the chalkboard as one of several students were not supposed to say during class, according to Turner.
I have found that generally the most accurate translation of “in order to protect the child” is, “in order to cover our worthless asses.”
