“Snow days!”

According to the local newspaper, because of all the winter weather that kicked off the new year, Salem Community High School District has already used up all of the emergency snow days that were built into the 2013-2014 school calendar, so Superintendent Brad Detering reported to the board that the final day of student attendance this year will be on June 5!

Ugh! I realize that no one has any control over the weather (global warming alarmists notwithstanding), but I would hate to be in school on June 5, after having started early the previous August almost a year earlier. The nice thing about homeschooling is that we can take “snow days” for fun whenever we want to, but we can also stay home during really bad weather and still get our schoolwork done while traditional schools are out of session. And we don’t have to worry about “make up” days!
