Our district only gives us three snow days. Every other district around has something like ten, but no, we have three. They always trot out a long-winded explanation about how we use these stockpiled days for in-service and early release (for more in-service) and blah, blah, blah, blah....and how teachers voted on this YEARS ago. However, no one I know even remembers voting for this, and it seems our winters our getting worse, so we're all a bit miffed.
So here we our, on a snow day (should be called an ice day) and we'll probably have one tomorrow since it's not warming up any, there's no sun, and there's 3 inches of ice pellets frozen everywhere. Which means, lucky us, they start adding 30 minutes to the school day to make it up.
