More than 30 Michigan schools closed for the holidays two days early this year because of the widespread fear of copycat attacks following last week's Newtown school shooting, and also in part due to the rumors of the doomsday on December 21st, 2012. Matt Wandrie, the superintendent for Lapeer Community Schools, reportedly wrote on his blog:
"Given the recent events in Connecticut, there have been numerous rumors circulating in our district, and in neighboring districts, about potential threats of violence against students," Wandrie wrote on his website. "Additionally, rumors connected to the Mayan calendar predicted end of the world on Friday have also surfaced," he added.
