Weird but true

Riding the bus to school pales in comparison to Daniel Depaolis’s ride for spirit week. Depaolis, a senior at Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School in Hamilton, Mass., dressed up as a knight ­and rode his horse to school. However, having a horse is not allowed on school grounds, and Depaolis was suspended for two days. Depaolis’s dad said the principal of the school told him bringing the horse onto school grounds was equivalent to having a loaded firearm. Seems there’s no horsing around at this school.
