Hamilton -- When Dan DePaolis, a senior at Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School, asked his parents if he could ride their horse to school and dress like a knight for spirit week nobody could?ve imagined that DePaolis would get suspended for this type of horse play.
DePaolis said that Menegoni told his son that riding the horse onto school grounds was the equivalent of bringing in a loaded firearm. DePaolis was wearing a prop sword on his knight outfit but ironically it was not the fake sword that caused the ruckus.
to get school's back into control of the parents and neighborhoods and out of the hands of state governments, even county governments if that's what it takes. We need to take back the education process, since after all, it's OUR children to be educated and we make it the way WE want it.
I can understand that. It could be a liability risk. But the kid's an A student. This is so minor, a warning should have sufficed. Comparing a horse to a loaded firearm is just loony IMO. Cars are much more dangerous.
