It is hard to have the first days of school snatched back - Climber got sick just as the holiday ended this term and I found it Very Hard to be sympathetic.
Won't they give you another orientation? I assume you weren't the only family kept away by the tropical storm.

Oh, EVERYBODY was kept from orientation. But they are loath to cut into the schedule to make room, so we're hoping "they all pick it up quickly."
Hope springs eternal...

Rock and roll plinking hey? He and Margot WILL make a good pair - he with his plinking, Margot with her stolen lyrics.

It's the-ever-popular-tortured-artist-effect* that really ties the whole thing together for NTS.

I love the term cubic assload. It speaks to me. :-)
Driving time to school is always tricky. In regular traffic it takes us about 5-7 minutes to get to the front door.
In morning traffic I leave 20 minutes before school starts and drop her in an adjoining library parking lot. That alone takes 12 to 15 minutes, leaving her 5 minutes to rush to school.
I won't even get into the details of how lame the parent drivers are. I'm sure you are well acquainted with that particular evil.

i'm very familiar with the missed-orientation feeling. S'okay though when everyone misses it along with you.

We get the special-for-ASD-kids orientation tomorrow. You know, the one I've been trying to get info on for three weeks now, but was only notified about YESTERDAY.
And I only just today pulled out the boy's backpack from last year to discover it's being held together with nothing but duct tape and good intentions. And the sexy new zippered notebook with all the pockets that I bought him at the end of the school year (read: mid-May) because the other one had fallen apart has gone missing.
But I did find the THREE student ID cards he lost last year! HAHAHA.
This back to school thing kills me EVERY TIME.

In Texas, is one allowed to horsewhip members of the educational bureaucracy?

No, but you can shoot them. Especially if they're on your property after dark. Lucky for them, I go to bed early.

If TFBIM ever finds that out, we'll have no choice but to move to TX. She's been dying to exercise her 2nd Amendment rights in the general direction of the educational bureaucracy for quite some time.
