Student excused from class for 'Red Sox fever'
NAHANT, Mass. (WHDH) -- Parents in and around Nahant weren’t surprised when one boy was out of school with a fever last week, but when they heard his mom had him dismissed for "Red Sox fever" they had a different reaction.
“I said ‘allow Brian to be excused, he has a case of Red Sox fever and Fenway is the only cure,’” Kerri McKinnon said.
Brian said when his teacher saw the letter she laughed.
Kerri is glad she got to spend the day with her son. She hopes it is an experience he will look back on fondly in the future.
