LAKESHORE SCHOOL EVACUATED

  
12:15 p.m. Friday, September 9, 2011

Plumbing problems at Lakeshore Elementary School have prompted school officials to evacuate the building. Lakeshore students and staff will be transported by bus to English Village Elementary School where they will finish the school day. All Lakeshore students will be bused home from English Village according to their normal dismissal schedule. Parents will receive phone notification of the evacuation.

More fine work by CRAPSTAR Construction?

Probably, and the taxpayer will pick the bill up for this screwup too.

WHERE was the Clerk of Work on that job?

so apparently there is enough extra space at EV to accommodate the entire LS population? Hmmmm....

To 3:18PM ~~ Great minds think alike! That was my first thought as well. My second thought was that there MUST BE ADEQUATE SPACE FOR BOTH SCHOOLS @ EV because if there wasn't the fire chief wouldn't have allowed an unsafe situation, right? ;)

There is a limit to the occupancy of individual rooms. They must have divided them up into the various bigger rooms. Maybe they had a magic show for them in the cafeteria. Maybe some were treated to a poetry reading in the library. Too bad for the kids. They are young and it must have been scary.

Isn't that pretty much what GTA passes off as EDUCATION every day?

It's magic if your kid learns to read and do basic math by Senior year.

Don't matter though, GTA Members get annual raises for nonperformance, and they can't be fired.

And again.... it must be the teachers fault for the plumbing problems. It's like groundhogs day on this blog!

To 4:38PM ~~ Really? What is THAT number please? Is the district limited on class sizes by that number, too? I've been questioned about the fact that GCSD built to accomodate 17,000 students, but we are finding that the students from Bridges fit into Arcadia without trouble, we've stopped using Barnard for classes, LS fit into EV for the day and the Supt. is still looking at closing a couple more schools. Oh and by the way, the official opening day head count was just 11,880 students, not the forecast 12,346.

According to the D&C:
"District Spokeswoman Laurel Heiden said the toilets at Lakeshore were not working properly, leading to a sewage backup in the building."

Sounds like something happened over the summer that should have been repaired.

Schools are closing. They just haven't decided which ones. We will know which ones in October or November.
