Price Lab carnival is bittersweet for parents and students
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -
Despite a possible closure looming for the Malcolm Price Laboratory School in Cedar Falls, the annual school carnival went on as planned. Parents noted, this year the fun-filled night was bittersweet.
Kids had a blast trying their luck at games, and even winning a few prizes. The parents said, spending time together -- as a community -- is the best part of the annual event. It's one of the reasons they're fighting so hard to keep their school open.
But as one father explained, some of the parents are preparing themselves -- and their children -- for what may be the inevitable
"This is not something new to the university. And it's not fair to the kids to have to revisit something like this two years from now again. That's not fair to the kids to have that -- well, is my school going to close this year, will it be next year, is it going to be five years from now?" parent Cody Engels noted.
Engels said, don't get him wrong -- he's not throwing in the towel just yet. A group of Price Lab parents is planning to file a lawsuit against the Board of Regents next week to attempt to reverse the decision to close the school.
