Snow Days Are The Best

I don't remember the last time I took a nap on a week day and wasn't sick. We don't get snow days often and I'm not sure we needed this one but I'm not mad about it

Yeah, it was so nice to wake up early & then head back to bed. That NEVER happens! Slept, shoveled, ate, watched tv, & now browsing PT (when I took out my laptop to do lesson plans ). Gotta love snow days!

I do enjoy a good snow day.

However, since January 2, we have missed maybe 15 days. Enough already.

Iím glad you were able to truly enjoy your day!!!

I enjoyed mine today too. It was nice to not have to drive in the snow and just get caught up on different tasks.

Oh my gosh, Ima and Teddi, do you have to make up all those days? When is your last day going to be?

Snow day #2

I LOVED my completely unproductive snow day. However, it was only our 2nd one this year; the other one was a month ago.

I am sorry for those with too many! Would not look forward to making those up! Unless you have e-learing days or can waive some due to state of emergency?

We have seven days staff can work without students and not have to make up. We make up the rest. We have used five staff days so far.

Our last day is May 24. It was originally May 17. We have also lost spring break.

Snow Days

We have had 3 so far. However, as I live in Ontario, snow days do not mean a day at home. The school buses don't run, but teachers are expected to go to school or report to your nearest neighborhood school. Last Wednesday was a snow day and I had 3 students. I am the highest paid babysitter ever.

Taking spring break?!

". We have also lost spring break." They are taking your spring break, Ima?! That's just wrong!

I live for spring break after the harsh winters. We literally book our spring cruise 2 years in advance! I am so sorry!

Can teachers use personal days if they made plans for spring break?

It fascinates people who deal with lots of snow to see how much people with little snow exposure enjoy it, if that makes sense.

And meanwhile, in California, it's 70 degrees and we are in a drought! Wish there was a happy medium!

We've had so little snow this year in Denver that people are excited about the 1-3 inches we're supposed to get tomorrow . I'd love to have a snow day. We need at least 8-10 inches before it's even considered.

I always thought that was the case here too but the forecast was way worse than the actual results
