Out for the summer: An end-of-the-school-year writing prompt

School's out: An end-of-the-school-year writing prompt. In this photo, a lone chair is silhouetted in a darkened school hallway.

A school teacher is packing up the classroom for summer vacation when a student walks into the room. The student reveals something that will change the course of the teacher’s summer. Describe the conversation. What does the classroom look and smell like? What are the emotions in the room? Use this scene as the start of a longer story or create a flash fiction piece about the conversation.
