Scenes from Silverado's 103rd Open House
The parents gathered, teachers were introduced, pizza was sold by Girl Scouts, proud students shared their work, classrooms were visited and admired - all was well except for the looming closure.
One wonders why the board of trustees and the superintendent didn't take the time to visit the little school in the canyon on this warm spring evening.
Surely if they believe so much in their decision they should stand behind it publicly, facing the very children and people it affects the most.
Their silence is deafening.
