I see where the yankee school kids got out of school because of snow yesterday. I don't know how many times I've heard that never happens.

It happens often enough around here that most districts schedule an extra 5 days at the end of the year to avoid going under the minimum requirements. Sometimes thay are closed for more than 5 and have to schedule weekend days, extend the year or get a waivre.

B/O said he was surprised when DC closed school for snow because, apparently, it's an extremely rare thing in Chicago.

What are you refering to... Kids going to school? Bunch of gang bangers anyway.

I loved no school days in the winter. Hated the after effects of going in on a hot June day. Back then there was no AC in the buildings.
