My kids haven't had a full day of school in over a week....
Last week, Monday was an inservice day followed by 4 days of a 2 hour delay because of wind chills plus an early dismissal on Friday due to a storm that hit earlier than expected and now tomorrow is already a delayed start due to the ice storm coming through. I'm actually waiting for the 5am call to cancel for the day because it's not supposed to clear up until afternoon.
Don't get me wrong, I'm glad our school is doing what they can to keep the kids safe but I am dreading the work that is coming for the kids to try and make up everything that they are missing. 15 hours of instructional time that has to be made up somewhere! Teachers will have to rewrite lesson plans to try and cram more stuff in (like they have any extra time to work with as it is!) I guess I'm just frustrated with knowing how hard this is going to make things for both the teachers and the kids. With PSSA's (PA's state assessment tests) coming up soon it's going to be rough for everyone.
I am so ready for spring!
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain
