I live in North Carolina. We have had an unusual number of days off for snowstorms. We had already used up the built-in days for bad weather before the last two days off this past week. We are in a similar dilemma. When to reschedule the days? Would the governor forgive them?

As of this moment, we have rescheduled the last two snow days for spring break, which doesn't make our parents very happy. I suspect that we won't have good attendance on those days if families had already planned trips to Disney World, etc.

I am sorry to hear about your district's handling of the snow days. It doesn't sound as if they are willing to work with teachers of young children. I am glad that our district asked principals to "work with teachers" who have daycare issues. My feeling is that you should approach your principal and express your concerns about your district's proposals for make-up days.. Perhaps she will be willing to work with you as well.
