I have been informed by my son that there is a row brewing about Paly students being unwanted at Kirks. Kirks claim they do not need Paly students' business. They have banned backpacks and do not want backpacks left outside to the degree that staff are throwing backpacks over the fence into the construction zone. The students in return are threatening to boycott Kirks, not only during school hours, but after school and weekends, with their families also.
Now I know that this is probably 75% rumour mongering, but I thought it was worth alerting the community, and parents in particular, of what is happening. It is obviously up to individuals to make their own decisions, but at least if we are aware that there is some sort of problem we can deal with it. I call this just sharing some information I have with others and being helpful.
