  •  Yeah, you reminded me of a time (5+ / 0-)

    when my principal and I were making home visits, and the apartment manager told us of a family that weren't sending their kids to school.  We knocked on the door.  The only furniture was bedding on the floor. The parents didn't send the kids 'cause we're a uniform school and they couldn't afford the uniforms.  Needless to say, we have uniforms for families like this, so we told them to send the children the next day, and we suited them up.

    We have quite a few McKinney-Vento kids.

    Remember, you can't have crazy without az.
