Tour of the LAHS Campus
Friday, September 8, 2017
201 Almond Avenue, Los Altos
3:45 to about 5:00
Registration for this event is closed.

This event is designed for those who weren't able to attend the campus tour at our 50th reunion. It's basically the same as the 2012 tour, but without the luncheon. When school is out at 3:30 there's a mad rush for the student parking lot, student cars flood onto Almond Avenue, and the crosswalk in front of school fills, bringing traffic to a halt. We've been advised to arrive before 3:30! Carpooling is also a good idea. Find a spot in the student parking lot (there are usually empty spaces in the area nearest San Antonio Rd.) and meander into the quad. On your way, make sure to notice the solar energy producing array built over the parking spaces, and the electric vehicle charging stations against the fence between the parking lot and Tom Burt Field and Leo Long Track.  We'll meet in room 314 which, unlike in 1962, now faces the quad.  If you arrive early, relax in the shade of the oak tree in front of the classroom and people-watch. Before the tour begins, you'll receive your reunion name-tag/event tickets which will also serve as your campus Visitor Pass.  Principal Wynne Satterwhite and one or more assistant principals will serve as our tour guides.

Highlights of the tour will be the new Library with group study rooms, the Tutorial Center, Computer Labs, the new state-of-the-art Theater, the new multi-story classroom buildings, the new John Felix Memorial Aquatics Center, and perhaps one or more of the Regional Occupation Program classrooms.  We’ll also see an example of one of the not new, but totally renovated classrooms which received make-overs with new windows, wall finishes, lighting, flooring, and heating/AC.  Along the way we’ll learn about other changes that have taken place in the last 55 years including changes in demographics & curriculum, as well as how the campus became home of The Eagles instead of the Knights!  The tour is limited to 60 people, so register early.               Register Above

(It was posted inside on the wall behind the bar last time we checked.) . Attire:  come as you are.  Registration isn't required, but is encouraged so the Alpine Inn knows how many of us to expect, and so you and your classmates will know who's coming!         Optional Registration Above
