    How many people were at Skyline the morning of June 4?

    How many people were at Skyline the morning of June 4?

    I've started a few times to try to figure this out, and gotten distracted, so when I saw a couple posts about it, I thought maybe it was time to start a thread to see if we could figure it out.

    Actually, I think we need to try to figure out how many people would be at the school on an average day, and how many people were there on this special event day, so we can compare.

    To get this started, there were 275 students enrolled then.

    On an average day, there are about 20 students absent.

    There is 1 teacher for every 12 students.

    So that would be about 255 students, and about 23 teachers. Total so far: 278.


    In addition to students and teachers, I can think of:

    - the parents attending the fair. No idea how to estimate how many kids had parents attending, how many had one parent, how many had two, how many had one or two parents plus a grandparent, neighbor, mommy's special friend, sibling, aunt, or cousin attend.

    - school administrative staff

    - vendors, contractors

    - volunteers (Are all volunteers parents? In other words, do we need to avoid double counting volunteers?)

    - miscellaneous visitors

    Hi BeanE, I read that last night but am late now getting out the door.

    It was Terri that said there had to be 300 people there. It was in the one statement I've read where she describes her timeline of that morning. If I knew where it was I'd go get it quickly but would have to search again. Ta

    There was a snotload of people there. That's all I know.

    Perhaps a few of our members who are, or have been, teachers could weigh in with how many students were likely to have a parent attend the fair - a fourth, half, 3/4? And how many students would have two parents there - I *think* this would be a very low number because of work schedules.

    If we said a fourth to a half of the students had a parent there would that be a good range to go with?

    Or... does anyone recall if LE ever gave a number of parents that were at the school? I don't even remember them ever saying how many parents showed up for the interviews. But they did want to talk to parents even if they hadn't been at the school that day, I think to see if their child may have told them anything of note.

    BBM. That's a unit of measurement with which I'm not familiar LOL!

    Not to mention, also, that people were probably coming and going throughout the morning hours. I get dizzy just thinking about how complicated it would have been to keep track of who was there, at what time, where they went in the building, when they left the building, where they parked... I feel a nightmare coming on, but I know that it was during the day

    I'd add in some grandparents for sure. My children's grandparents loved going to the school events. Also include a few Skyline community members as the sign out front invited the public to attend.

    Not a teacher here but schools really vary on volunteer/parent participation. Knowing a few things about Skyline, I think it's very similar to my own kids school. K-8 and pretty active parents. On a big event like this, we typically get about a quarter to a third of the parents show up. In a class of 30 kids, that means between 7-9 parents. That number also matches up to what was reported about them breaking up into groups of 4 kids with a chaperone. 30 kids divided by 4 would mean 7-8 chaperones. Now as you get into the older grades, participation dwindles. So keeping all that in mind...an educated guess from me would be about 45-50 parents total.

    Thanks, loves. 50 is about a quarter of the average 255 students in attendance each day, and that seems like a good estimate to me. So many parents have to work these days, and I think the majority would be unable to make it to an event at that time and still get to work on time.

    So that would give us a new current total of about 328 people at the school that day.

    I can't find anything to tell me how many administrative staff members the school has. Anybody want to take a gander at that? I have no idea what a good estimate would be.

    What has always bothered me is not how many people were there, but how many people saw KYRON and Th.
    My grandchildren go to small schools with huge participation on school projects like this.
    When I go, it is also like a social..........cookies, tea/ coffee.........
    I end up seeing other friends, children and grandparents, did no one talk with either of them?
    Was TH not liked? She was WELL KNOWN there..........yet no one is really saying how long or the times they both were REALLY there???
    No cliques that she ran with other moms? the teachers?
    It is all to strange for me.
    I think it is VERY funny about that Friday morning.
    How long did she stay?
    Kyron, HALEIGH, ADJI & Gabriel NEEDS PRAYERS NOW TO FIND THEM!. Zahra & Jonathan in heaven
    Justice for Hailey!!!!
    No Justice for Caylee Marie..........

    I wish we had information about how many students/parents were in the building on Thursday (after school?) to set up science fair exhibits in order to avoid the morning rush or because the parents would not be in attendance on Friday morning.

    Would all/most of the chaperones also be parents?

    I'm guessing, but, yes, I think it's safe to say that the "chaperones" were likely parents of Skyline students. jmo

    A snotload is not as much as a buttload, far away from a boatload, but by all means, stay away from a s-load!!!!! <3

    Wow. For there to be SOOOO many people at Skyline on June 4, it sure was reckless and negligent for Terri to ditch a seizure- and confusion-prone Kyron in the hallway, amidst all those people.
