via RMPTSA, balloons...?
Dear Parents,

PLEASE!!!!! Do not send balloons to students at school. We had another incident today with a balloon on Main Street.

Thank you.

Moreno Carrasco
Principal,
Richard Montgomery High School

I'm very confused. I know balloons are a choking hazard for young children, but... we don't have really young children. Granted, I wouldn't give it past someone to be like, "Oooooh, let's see if we can un-blow-up a balloon by sucking reeeeeaally hard."

Or maybe it was an idiot inhaling helium and passing out..?


[edit] Ah, Carrasco got back to me:
"Main Street is the open atrium of the school. Balloons set off the fire alarm when they fly up and cross the path of smoke detector sensors. The Fire Dpt. had to come in and remove the balloon on Friday. We've two emergency evacuations because of this. Thanks."

That's highly amusing. What kind of crappyass smoke detectors do we have...?

According to Jonathan, they float up the three-story atrium on "Main Street," and somehow trip the smoke detectors, so the fire alarm goes off, school gets evacuated, etc.

Or they're just being the fun police. Boo.
