Public School Again: Alcohol Served to Kindergarten Kids

It’s no challenge anymore to find public school outrage stories.

You really don’t expect your child to come home from kindergarten tipsy, half-lit, slightly blotto… do you?

But that’s what happened recently at Grand River Academy, Livonia, Michigan. The kiddies “felt woozy” after drinking Jose Cuervo margaritas brought to class by a girl who carried the mix in her backpack (https://nypost.com/2022/04/16/woozy-after-drinking-margaritas-at-michigan-school/). The kids drank it from dixie cups at snack time.

Uh… hello? Is there a teacher in the house? There is… but you let the kiddies just drink anything that anybody brings in? What if it was insecticide? Like, it could’ve been anything. You might’ve need an ambulance. This could’ve been really bad.

Oh, I see… you were busy planning the next Transgender lesson, you never noticed some kid brought in something and gave it to the other kids to drink. As long as they’re using gender-neutral pronouns, all’s well. And don’t forget the Critical Race Theory lessons! What teacher has time to see what’s going on in her classroom?

This “academy,” by the way, is a free public charter school. I very much doubt they have a liquor license.

    1. The point is, the teacher should have paid more attention to what was going on under her nose. That drink could have been anything.

  1. Down here in TN wine and beer products are now being sold in the grocery stores. Besides these products the stores also sell coolers, twisted teas, hard ciders, and all sorts of other alcoholic goodies. And these products’ labels often look like a party in a bottle or in a can with their bright colors and lettering and so on. And these often are showcased near the designated “booze” aisle but not necessarily in the aisle itself. And the products often are stacked near other beverages like energy drinks or specialty soft drinks. What I’m getting at is the products are in the stores and can be easily gotten and sometimes mistaken for soft drinks. And parents need to be watchful if they do buy these products and to put these products in a place where their children can’t get to them easily. Trying to explain the difference between a child’s innocent soft drink and mommy’s little helper may help but it may stir up an unhealthy curiosity in their children. I don’t know; I don’t drink any of it. Parents need to be watchful if they have these products in their home and check what’s going to school in the lunchbox.

    1. My parents used to do a lot of entertaining, and they had a liquor cabinet. I never sampled any of those drinks, and I don’t think my brother and sister did, either. We understood they were for adults only–and probably tasted bad.

  2. Well, Lee, I was that curious child who not only opened the liquor cabinet to look inside but I do remember removing the cap from Seagram’s Seven and taking a sip. I really didn’t like the taste but it was so much fun being bad.

    1. I must admit my mother had two little bottles of liquers–Blue Curacao and Creme de Minthe–in the refrigerator… and I guess their bright colors attracted me. And they tasted great! But I only took very tiny sips, or Ma would’ve gotten suspicious.

    2. I was permitted a sip of my father’s beer and a taste of my grandmother’s wine, which was probably a good thing. I didn’t like beer and my watered down, sugar-added taste of wine, was like cheap, imitation, Kool-Aid. These tiny samples removed the forbidden fruit aspect of alcohol and I never had any desire to experiment with liquor in my formative years. I will also mention that my parents, especially my father, taught me the dangers of alcohol abuse from an early age.
