Last week I looked at this week’s forecast and saw snow was predicted. Fine… but it’s a week away. Over the next few days amounts of snow and arrival days kept changing: 5” Wednesday and 8” Thursday? no… 12” Wednesday and 3” Thursday? no… Tuesday it seemed to settle on 1-2” Wednesday night and 10+” Thursday.
We’d had snow in October and I’d emailed our Head of School and the MS and US Principals, reminding them that students needed a bit of normal right now, and could we (if appropriate) have a snow day. The answer came back with a resounding yes. Just because we can teach remotely doesn’t mean we should.
