The Best Tweets About The L.A. School Shutdown

Laughing to keep from crying.

Posted on

On Twitter, reaction was swift.

As soon as I found out school was cancelled today

when there's bomb threats and school gets cancelled

Every kid in the #LAUSD right now after finding out there's no school today

The news struck some students harder than others.

Driving my son 2 school when we heard that the whole district is closed due to a terrorist threat. His response: "Damn. My hair's on point."

Mom:max no school cuz of terrorist attacks Lil brother: man don't they know I like too play basket ball on Tuesdays

While parents felt a little different about the whole thing:

When you told your mom there's no school for LAUSD but she don't believe you so she mad tryna call the main office

What are some fun terrorism day activities for school kids?

A lot of private schools were still open, though...

When you find out your school campus is still open even tho there's a threat going out to lausd

But for a lot of kids who had the day off it was a cause for celebration...

Although for others the shutdown was just a couple of days too early...

Half the students at #LAUSD asking why couldn't this happen on Friday. #StarWarsForceAwakens #StarWars

Some kids quickly found themselves wishing school was in session:

My mom just told me since there's no school I can clean the house.😑 #mexicanproblems

My little bros should have gone to school today bc I just bombed the restroom

While others might have been a bit concerned about what was going on at school while they weren't there...

Think about all the #LAUSD students who are freaking out over having their locker searched today.

Some made fun of L.A. officials for being so cautious compared to New York City, where schools remained open despite the same threat being received there.

Wait until we tell LAPD how dangerous it is for kids walking and biking to school. They'll shut the whole city down.

But it was this hero who drew our attention to the real victim of the school shutdown:

YOOOO I JUST REALIZED THE TAMALE LADY IS PROBABLY POSTED BY THE SCHOOL WONDERING WHERE TF WE ARE SMH CAN SOMEONE GO TELL HER THE NEWS
