So...about 11:00 AM, just as I'm checking my e-mail, a student comes to the office to say that there is no water in the bathroom. One of the e-mails (sent at 10:30 AM) is from the college notifying us that there has been a break in the water main, courtesy of the highway department. It might take two hours to repair...or maybe six hours. SO, the decision is made to send our high school kids home.
Mark it down...on the 7th day of school (and a full moon apparently), I sent out my first AlertNow message to all parents and successfully, with the help of the staff, got each and every student on his or her way home three hours early.
I'm just praying that we don't arrive at school in the morning to find port-a-potties in the parking lot.
Port-a-potties are JUST for tailgating...and that's a stretch.
Speaking of tailgating...TEN DAYS until the Tigers ROAR in Death Valley!!
