We've had a wonderful, mild winter but this week is more like our normal cold. Today the temperature has fallen to -28C but with the windchill it is more like -41C. Needless to say the students are not outside for recess because it's too cold.
Our cutoff temperature is -27C for staying inside. What is your cut off temperature?
Yesterday we had parents calling to ask if the school would be open today due to the cold. We answered that we never close which is true. Our school division never closes schools due to weather in case students show up they need somewhere to go. We also never have a late start to the morning. Everything continues as usual but parents have the choice of sending their children or not. How does it work where you live? Does your close down due to weather? Share your stories and send a comment.
We also would like to welcome Ms. Casey's students in Rhode Island to Friday Writing. We can't wait to read your blog posts!
Hi Kim our mail server seems to be down right now so I want to let you know that I posted the prompt. I didn\'t want to go too deep yet (like \"What is your earliest memory?\" \"Why can\'t I be selfish?\") so I hope this is appropriate.
See you tomorrow,
