Newsbrief: Planbook errors

Sept. 11, 2003, midnight | By Kedamai Fisseha | 20 years, 9 months ago

The mistakes in the 2003-2004 plan books will soon be fixed, administrators said on Wednesday. In the attached email to Silver Chips, Assistant Principal Pamela Shetley reported:

"There are a number of calendar errors in the 2003-04 Blair student handbook for the months of September - February. These errors are among others that the company was asked to fix in August when they submitted the first draft of the plan book. After speaking with the Squibb Company, and expressing great dismay, they are offering a number of alternatives to compensate for their error, which includes replacing the handbooks. Not passing out the handbooks and sending them back to be replaced would have created a great delay for the students, which was not a viable option.

Squibb Printing Company will be sending Blair a set of stickers for students to make corrections to the student handbook calendar errors. They will be sending one set of stickers for each booklet in the building. In conjunction, to compensate for their error, they will be giving us a discounted rate on the price of every booklet and forwarding Blair 700 (error free) booklets.

The stickers should arrive no later than Monday, Sept. 15th. Information regarding how to disseminate the stickers will be forthcoming."
