The rules have been clarified:
1 If you are an early bird, you can bring a Dunkin's coffee as long as you drink it before 8:05 and dispose of the evidence.
2 You can make coffee in the Teacher's Room, pour it in an open cup and bring it back to your room after 8:05.
3 You can bring water from home, keep it in a drawer, pour it into a paper cup to drink in front of the kids.
Again, the laughing stock of Massachusetts. I hear this has been all over the news, talk shows, and cyberspace.
