Hundreds of incoming seniors gathered at the Logan Pavilion Wednesday hoping to get their schedules for their last year in high school; instead, no schedules were handed out to the students, but everyone had to take pictures and receive new ID cards to prepare for the start of the new school year.
Many students, like senior Kristen Kidd, were expecting to have their schedules in hand as they left campus that day because “that is what the school had initially informed everyone about.” She said that the day “was sloppy and Logan wasn’t prepared.” Kidd felt upset and because this is not how she wants to start her final year at Logan, and she does not like the new I.D. cards.
New Principal Judy Billingsley said that the hastily changed plan was not an echo of last year's problem-plagued school opening, but rather an attempt to avoid a repeat of last year's mistakes.
