Our principal sent us an email today with lots of cautions. And teachers are required to send home permission slips if they're taking their class outside.

 
 
We are expected to take them out...unless the parents opt them out.
They bought the glasses and have sent out several lesson plans and videos to bolster the event.
 
The weather isn't looking good, at all, though.

Well as it goes next Tuesday is Aug. 22, think I will start a re-read of a Trixie classic.

I could not be less interested in stuff like this. If I see passing coverage of it on tv, that is more than good enough for me. But, I know that is all that will be covered for days. I have a lot of concerns with schoolkids (especially younger ones) going out to observe it at school. I'm afraid they will remove their glasses due to not comprehending the possible dire consequences or due to behavioral issues.

Daytona Beach was the first Florida resort to be taken over (and destroyed) by Spring Breakers.  I think they worked hard to clean it up so the parties moved to Fort Lauderdale.  I know several people whose kids are in college in VA and they go to Key West.  I'm also seeing more and more going to Mexico.  
 
Like Kay, I was too poor to go anywhere over Spring Break.  The closest I came is my one friend's grandparents lived in Florida and she invited me to go with her. Four of us were going to share driving (15-16 hours straight through) and stay with them in a retirement community. But my father literally screamed when I said Florida and Spring Break in the same sentence.  I envisioned playing Canasta in the evenings with old people but I think my dad envisioned something different.   Grin Grin
 
I think now it's more East Coast kids go to Atlantic Beaches, mid-western to Gulf beaches than it is money or partying.  
 
ANYWAY, answering the original question--I think a student could go anywhere with a beach but the hardiest drinking and partying are in Mexico and places like Ft. Lauderdale.  
 
Oh, yes, Palm Beach (in FL) is too expensive for most college kids.  Palm Springs is too for that matter but it's in the California desert.

Found out that we are all covered.... 25,000 glasses.  I only hope that we have good, clear, weather that day.
 
Right now, it's not looking promising.

Going back to the original question (although the absurdity of the old rich mindset is both appalling and interesting) ,. I think most kids go where they can afford.   For me and my crowd, we usually went home for spring break.  

I know I always stayed at home. I had no desire to go anywhere. Being able to relax and not have homework was always a plus.

I have no big plans.  I did get glasses for me, Sharon and John.   I think John has to work, so I hope he can get out side for a bit.   Just realized that Sharon may still be in class.....  Need to check.
