I'm sorry to be obtuse, but I still don't fully understand the necessity of purchasing badges for parents' weekend. If it is a question of making a donation to cover costs, I'm OK with that. I'm not out to be stingy. However, if I'm to assess the value of the badges to me and my family, I need more info. I guess my specific question is this. If my wife and I were to simply show up to KP on Friday, 9/3 with no badges, would this limit our access to our DS in any way? Any enlightenment on this score would be greatly appreciated.
