Principal: 'Sorry' that kids stuck in heat

By Mike McPhate

The principal of Robert Frost Middle School in Rockville apologized to parents Wednesday after an evacuation at the school led to 24 kids suffering heat-related illnesses, News Channel 8 is reporting.

"I am sincerely sorry for any adverse impact upon your children. My number one priority is their safety and security," Joey Jones said during a meeting to address parents' concerns over the incident.

Frost students spent more than two hours in the school's fields while a bomb threat was investigated last Wednesday, a day when temperatures climbed into the upper 80s.

Just think, if it were a holiday, these same sensitive, over-coddled, treasures would have been in this same heat playing. (Er ... kids do still play outside these days, don't they?)
