    WTF happened to the Lafayette Elem Open House tonight?

    • WSB January 31, 2012 (6:02 pm)

      It was canceled; we took it off the calendar when we got that word a few days ago. Lafayette says the district canceled it; there’s no plan to reschedule BUT they are conducting daytime tours “by appointment” … TR

    Bummer about the Lafayette cancellation. They still have it up on their website here:


    My child is in tears and my significant other took off from work early. Not a good first impression.

    • WSB January 31, 2012 (6:48 pm)

      Oh no! I’m sorry to hear it’s on the website … if I had realized that we could have published a “NOT happening” again this morning besides just what WAS happening :( … TR

    Was at Ladayette a bit ago (hadn’t seen the xcln). No signs on the doors or anything. Lots of other confused parents milling about. Please someone reassure that they’re usually a bit more organized than this?

Sorry, comment time is over.
