Calif. school blunder: All dressed up but no prom
Teens not told date of the big dance had been moved.
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — Everyone got stood up at one Southern California high school's prom. The dance itself was a no-show.
KABC-TV Los Angeles reports (http://bit.ly/18lwRRb ) dozens of tuxedo-clad and corsage-wearing teens from Bloomington High School traveled 40 miles to Santa Anita Park on Saturday, only to discover they hadn't been told that the date of the big night had changed.

Instead of the enchanting evening they were expecting, students were served chicken strips in a hastily arranged small hall where someone played music from a laptop computer.
The San Bernardino County school's calendar and the prom invitations listed the event on April 27, but it was slated for May 4.
Principal Ignacio Cabrera says there was miscommunication with event planners.
A semi-formal substitute event is planned for May 18.

And this never would have happened, because the kids working on the prom would have spread the word. We didn't have phones (except those wired to the wall in our homes), no computers smaller than a city bus. No email, texting, IM VM or any other means of electronically communicating. Of course...we talked to each other face to face, and I can assure you it worked.
Oh...Our SAT scores were substantially higher then. Morons.
Its San Bernardino ,
Just relax ,
At least they didn't bag the area for its gun violence.
Can't believe they still do proms. However, aren't they usually organized by the Junior class as a parting gift to the Seniors? It's been a while, but it seems like students used to make all the arrangements. Hard to believe someone wasn't in constant contact with the facility in the days leading up to the scheduled event. Total lack of "Real World" understanding on whoever was responsible.
