Tiger Woods Apologizes to Pre-School Parents

2/23/2010 1:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren have issued a letter of apology to the parents at the Florida school where their 2-year-old daughter, Sam, attends day care classes.

Tiger Woods and wife Elin Nordegren

In the letter, obtained by WFTV9.com, Woods blames the paparazzi for creating an "inconvenience" around the Premier Academy in Windermere over the past few months.

Here is the letter in its entirety:

Dear Premier Academy parents,

We would like to share our appreciation for your support over the past several months and offer our personal apology for any inconvenience you are experiencing due to the increased media scrutiny surrounding our children. We truly understand how frustrating it can be.

We hope that the paparazzi will find something better to do with their time in the near future. In the meantime, it is our goal to keep life as normal as possible for our children. We are sure that as parents you can appreciate that. For Sam, that normalcy means attending the school that she enjoys so much.

Again, we truly appreciate the support from the entire Premier Academy family.

Kind regards,

Elin and Tiger Woods

WTH????
Oh No he didn't!!!!
Did you hear where his wife, Elin, didn't want to take a "NEW" family picture with Tiger and the kids, just a day before his speech???
Elin is one bad ass white girl!! Go Elin! Go Elin!
Guess what? There's not going to be a Black, Thai, White or whatever man getting over on Elin again!!! You can believe that!!
If more sista’s and white bimbos put their foot down on men like Tiger….well, let just say they wouldn’t be putting their dip-stick in some empty oil can!!!!
Can I get an AMEN??????

TO THE PEOPLE WHO ARE CRTITICIZING ELIN FOR GETTING BACK TOGETHER WITH TIGER...GET A LIFE..ELIN COULD CARE LESS IF SHE HAS YOUR SUPPORT OR NOT..ELIN IS NOT A PUBLIC FIGURE, HER HUSBAND IS...SO WHY WOULD SHE NEED APPROVAL FROM THE PUBLIC? IT'S HER LIFE, IT'S HER CHOICE ON HOW SHE WANTS TO LEAD HER PRIVATE LIFE...ALSO, IF ANYONE OF YOU HAS ANY COMMON SENSE LEFT, TIGER HAD ALREADY PUT THE BLAME ON HIMSELF FOR ALL THE FIASCO...ALL HE IS ASKING IS SOME UNDERSTANDING FROM THE STUPID PAPS TO LEAVE HIS KIDS ALONE BCUZ THEY DIDN'T DO ANYTHING..AS FOR ELIN, SHE WANTED TO SAY SORRY FOR THE PARENTS OF THE SCHOOL BCUZ SHE KNOWS THAT SHE IS THE WIFE OF A PUBLIC AND SHE CHOSE TO BE AND SHE CAN'T CONTROL THE STUPID PAPS FOR CAUSING INCONVENIENCE TO THE SCHOOL...BASICALLY, I COMMEND TIGER AND ELIN FOR WRITING AN APOLOGY TO THE PARENTS...EVERY CHILD HAS A RIGHT TO GO TO SCHOOL WHETHER THEY HAVE FAMOUS PARENTS OR NOT...SAM IS NO EXCEPTION, SHE DESERVES TO GO TO SCHOOL LIKE EVERY OTHER CHILD..I HOPE THAT THE PARENTS WHO GOT THIS APOLOGY LETTER WILL REALIZE THIS AND UNDERSTAND THE SITUATION.

Sounds like they're afraid of their child being kicked out of the school. I'm sure the school will overlook they're troubles knowing the donation the school will be receiving at the next P.T.A. meeting! I'm sure there will be gold layered cake to pass out on the next bake sale............ " Ptttthhhhhpppppppp!

RRRRRRRRRRRRR    

Miss Scarlet--My point is that she should not have been in "school" (daycare) at all!! What does this woman do all day? She needs to parent her children instead of hiring out their care. I am sure she has someone to care for the housecleaning, yard work, cooking, and we already know she has a full time nanny for the kids. Now we find out the 2 yr old is in daycare! GEESH! I do not begrudge her hiring out the mundane household chores as they have the means, and maybe a nanny might be nice to add extra hands with two little children. Heck, I could have used that when my kids were little, but dumping the two yr old in daycare is outrageous. Tiger is a a dog by nature, but maybe if he had respect for her, he might have thought before he cheated. I have have lost respect for her, in light of this.
This girl may love "school" and maybe she doesn't. My question is why can't her lazy mom provide the schedule and stability you talk about?

What a mess! The press should be ashamed of themselves! Their behavior is worse than Tiger's. Cameras have no business anywhere near that school.
