Ugh, no Snow Day. :(

Seriously?! We are supposed to get 8-10 inches of snow during the day today. Every school district in a 50 mile radius is closed today and ours decides that apparently the ISAT is more important than teacher and student safety....

They haven't even cancelled after school yet.

I'm sure I'm going to have a great turn out today....Hope the 3 kids that show up can concentrate on testing.

I see you are in the Chicagoland area. Which district? I was actually surprised we were closed today since our district is usually the last and NEVER closes "in anticipation" of snowfall. I do remember subbing in a school several years ago when they were the only district open, I was told it was because so many of the kids would be on there on and have no food if left home. Kind of sad!

I am surprised we closed already. I guess they were worried about getting the kids home. It just seems weird to have a snow day when it is absolutely clear out.

Both the schools I visit today in the north and northwest suburbs closed today. It is true that CPS will never close. They actually did for the first time in about 20 years a couple of years ago when we had that 20 inch storm. That would have been really stupid if they had not closed with all that snow.

I actually can't believe all the districts that called the day last night. I mean we are in CHICAGO people....it snows, we are prepared, we know what to do.

I wish my district had an early release schedule. We're all or nothing.

We got called last night. When I woke up, there wasn't a flake on the ground. Now it's coming down pretty fast. I guess we should have done a half day. To be fair, the call is made after the super talks to the bus company. The buses thought they wouldn't be able to safely run in what was predicted.

I guess it wasn't as terrible as I thought it would be. All but 1 of my kiddos showed up for testing. They made the no after school call at about noon, so I was able to have my kids call their parents and let them know about that. We only had about 4 inches on the ground when we left the school this afternoon. We'll see how it looks tomorrow!

Wait. They cancelled your after school? Ugh. We had after school and I was at work until 5. I was told that the providers have to cancel the after school programs for SES, that the school doesn't have that authority.

We start testing tomorrow. Disaster drill was today.
