It was Tuesday at the continuation high school, and the place was nearly empty. Lines for food during snack and lunch were nearly nonexistent. And I had three students in class per period.
Much of the school had gone on a field trip.
I heard the numbers, so I did a quick calculation. Roughly 31% of the school went. (It's a small school, so that's not a very large number.)
In fact, that's why I was there. The teacher I covered was one of the chaperones.
So, it was a pretty easy day. Most of those that didn't go didn't want to get up that early. The buses left at 6 AM. Although, a couple just weren't interested.
Where did they go? To the taping of a TV show. (One of the joys of living in L.A. County.)
Hey, it was a nice way for them to get out of the usual. And it made it a really easy day for me.
