    Even PEA, who is notorious for not canceling, canceled today. It was their first day back and a lot of kids never made it back to campus. Of course the teachers handed out snow day assignments

    My kid’s school cancelled classes today too.

    Classes weren't cancelled here, though day students who didn't stay over in the dorms were excused. Our public schools and local colleges were all closed.

    Choate didn’t cancel classes, although a lot of kids couldn’t fly in... it’s gonna be a rough Monday.

    Well... classes at Cate were cancelled today & tomorrow due to mudslides!
  • CaliMexCaliMex Registered User Posts: 591 Member
    I wonder if the fire and now mudslides will affect applications to Cate and Thacher. Will fewer kids apply?

    I don't think the fires or slides will have any effect at all on Thacher. The Thomas fire will have made the school safer for years to come and the mudslides have not (have never) impinged on the campus. In my recollection, the last major mudslides affecting Ojai were back around 2006 or 2007. I remember the Thacher students engaged in a lot of community service to help clean and protect the houses of the older residents of the community.

    It certainly hasn’t diminished our interest! If anything, we are impressed with how well Thacher responded to the fires and communicated with stakeholders. We were hoping it might discourage others since we know the odds of admission for a candidate that needs FA are really low, @ThacherParent
