Children at Michael and Lizzie's school! Do you need courage, strength and grace under pressure from your teachers in this time of crisis? TOO BAD!! They're far more likely to make a mess in their drawers than you are!

(Strip Number 4922, Original Publication Date, 28 January 1988)

Panel 1: We head back to the school to hear someone with a bullhorn tell everyone to stay where they are because their emergency generators will kick on in just a minute.

Panel 2: One of the teachers comes up to Mr Warren and says that they're going crazy down where she came from; she has to deal with panicky people screaming that they want their mommy and they wanna go hooooome.

Panel 3: He asks her if it's the elementary classes that are doing that.

Panel 4: She leaves him gobsmacked when she tells him that it's coming from the staff room.

Summary: Hmmm. I wonder how exactly this sort of strip affected Aaron and Katie when they were at school. Lynn might have insisted that their teachers shouldn't take what's just something to make her happy personally but she did so in vain.
