Calif. school blunder: All dressed up but no prom

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — Everyone got stood up at one Southern California high school’s prom. The dance itself was a no-show.

KABC-TV Los Angeles reports (http://bit.ly/18lwRRb ) dozens of tuxedo-clad and corsage-wearing teens from Bloomington High School traveled 40 miles to Santa Anita Park on Saturday, only to discover they hadn’t been told that the date of the big night had changed.

Instead of the enchanting evening they were expecting, students were served chicken strips in a hastily arranged small hall where someone played music from a laptop computer.

The San Bernardino County school’s calendar and the prom invitations listed the event on April 27, but it was slated for May 4.

Principal Ignacio Cabrera says there was miscommunication with event planners.

A semi-formal substitute event is planned for May 18.
