Re: snow days!

thanks...i think this one had something to do with karma...lol

 

ok so i am like mayor of procrastinate-ville. so its 11 and i finally finish my french which took me an hour, and my dad comes in and is like- you have no school...

now if i hadnt done my homework

( like i usually dont)

then i prolly would have had to wait till the morning to hear it or it might not have happenned...

although we did have a winter strom advisory till 4 today, and are still expected to get up to 8 more inches...

 

 

did that make any sense?

Re: snow days!

YAY I had a snow day yeaterday and it was great. The only problem was they announced it in the morning so I satyed up till like midnight finishing it. But I was justy happy I had no school. We have 5 snow days where I live and if you have any more than that than you have to make them up at the end of the year.

Re: snow days!

You guys suck. We had 12, count 'em TWELVE inches of snow, and did we get a snow day? No. because District 86 is the dumbest district ever. The superintendants told us that  we have so few days off, if you took off the extra days we have, we would get out school in April. Addtionally, our last day of school isn't even decided until the last week! So unfair! And we get no free days. If we have off one day for whatever reason, we make it up. Also, not counting winter break, we've had 3 days off school, and 1/2 the 10am starts than any school in the area.

Re: snow days!

you guys don't have it too bad. i wake up at 5, 5!!!! everyday and leave the house at 6 to get to school by 8. i actually get to school around 7 36 to 7 45. i have a loooong commute.i take a train, then the ferry, then the subway. i sleep during the trip. lol

 

about snow days... it was going to snow last sunday night but it didn't snow enough :[. so i had school.

 

for the above times. its because i have 1st period if i didnt i would have to be in school by 8 45.
