Parents Celebrate Best Day of Year

After dropping her children Ramsey and Beckett off at SMIS, Julie Dunn met several friends at a “back to school, parents-only party” before heading up to the Berkshire for an all-day drinkathon. Parents danced and sang “Summer’s out” in a mix-up parity of the famous 70’s hit “School’s out” by Alice Cooper (whatever happened to his bar in LoDo?). “This is the greatest day ever,” announced a highly intoxicated Cael Sanderson, who is part of a massive number of parents that take the first day of school off from work and go drinking. “I love my kids, but I was so f***ing sick of them!” Other parents traded beads, flashing fake boobs, and kissing strangers. The first day of school has become Stapleton’s very own Mardi Gras. See our poll and vote for the holiday you think is the easiest to get lucky. “We finally don’t have to worry about driving them to camps, packing lunches for camps, worrying if they will enjoy it, etc.,” said resident Jolene Westwick. “Now, we just drop them off at the bus stop, and no fuss, no muss.” The day also is a way for parents from other schools to get together and agree that although they may disagree on what school is the best, they agree that getting back to school is fantastic. Westerly Creek Parent Chris Sword is glad parents from all three schools can share some camaraderie. “During the year, it’s a big pissing contest about what school is the best.  But the day school starts is just all about partying.” The Berkshire plans to open their doors by 9:30 next year, and will be providing a live band for entertainment, along with roping off a large portion of 29th ave. School is back, baby!]]>
