Homebound Student Wins Fight to Attend Dance - Kayla Swan,
a 15-year-old sophomore, has taken her classes at home since she
was stricken with a rare blood disorder last year, but she was
bound for homecoming a few weeks ago at Lapeer West High School.
She had the dress, shoes and a date, but her principal said no
way. If she was not in class the day of the dance, she could not
be at homecoming, the principal told her family.
