“If you see my kids locked outside today, mind your business. We are having a fire drill”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic resulted in the closing of many schools. Many parents were homeschooling for the first time.

“If you see my kids locked outside today, mind your business! We are having a fire drill!” was posted on Facebook by Scott Feely on March 19, 2020.

“If you see my kids crying outside and picking weeds, just keep on driving. They’re on a field trip” is a similar jocular saying.


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
