On the last day of school in Tacoma Friday, outgoing Superintendent Art Jarvis rang the historic bell atop the school district’s 99-year-old Central Administration Building downtown.
It was a fitting end to the school year. Jarvis also rang the bell this past September to mark the end of an eight-day teacher strike and a do-over for the start of the 2011-12 school year.
But when the school district posted a photo of Friday’s historic moment on its Facebook home page, something went wrong. The home page showed a dramatic shot of the bell, but most of Jarvis (except for a tell-tale hand) got cut out of the snap.
A bit premature, perhaps. After all, Jarvis still has another week before he’s officially retired.
