This is epic

This is monumental


They do not close for much of anything and if/when they do, they don't make the call until 5:30 AM


This came out before 10 pm the night before


It must be really frikin cold and the superintendent must have had a little slide on his way home

No doubt. Grew up in USD259...they do not close for ANYTHING! I remember going to school with near blizzard conditions back in the 70's. The teachers let us have hot chocolate at our desks, which was pretty cool. Wind was whipping so bad the power went out a few times, but came back on and we had to come back the next day.

Enjoy it!

Hell USD 501 has closed for two days in a row tomorrow. It's rare that they will close either.

It irritates the hell out of me when they call off school, but I understand why they have to do it. I just wish they would tack on all the snow days to the end of the school year.

I just wish they would tack on all the snow days to the end of the school year.OUr district used to have 3 built in snow days to avoid make up days but they took them out this year so they are making everything up now. Everyone in the district is pissed now. I would hate to be the teachers or families that scheduled a vacation the day after school let out like we did last year.

I can't see why, they already get an absurd amount of time off as it is.

Oh yeah, I can see how 2 months wouldn't be a long enough vacation for them. And I'm not jealous, it's just hard to feel sorry for someone who already gets that much time off.

If you're talking about summer, I know many teachers who teach summer school, go back to school to learn any updates in their area of study, provide tutoring, etc. I don't think there are many, teachers anyway, who get summers completely off.

My wife is a teacher. She is in the middle of her 14th year now. Every year we have been together, she spends the majority of her "vacation" taking classes to renew endorsements, attending seminars and symposiums, becoming familiar with new textbooks, as well as preparing her classroom for the next school year.

During the school year, she works until 7pm on most nights and brings home papers to grade. She spends time at parent teacher conferences dealing with parents who want to be at the school just as much as their kids want to be there.

All for well under what ANYONE with a Masters Degree should earn. Hell, I have just a HS diploma and nearly earn as much as she does.

Any given summer, she gives herself 14 days, including weekends, just for herself.

It really isn't the sweet gig is sounds like.

They need to go year round without any damn vacation at all. Hell they can still give the teachers the time off for all I care, just lock the heathens in the school and let them fend for themselves. Maybe drop some food through a hole in the roof every couple days.

Wind I can deal with, I just won't go outside unless I'm gonna go drive and it's only a 10 foot walk to my car. But today when I got to my car I had to spend 20 fucking minutes getting all the snow out of the way. And I had no idea it even snowed until I walked outside.

But once I was out driving around. It sure was beautiful with all the fresh snow on every thing. But now I have had my fill of pretty.

LMAO Was kind of thinking the same thing. Btw, is it a Kansas thing that refers to school districts by a number?

All of the ones I'm used to here in Missouri go by town or city names. Sometimes in bigger cities, with more than one school, schools will have a unique name, (Rock Bridge here in columbia) but I never hear of them as District 249 etc.

Not sure if it's just a Kansas thing or not. But my disctrict (308) refers to all of the public schools which would be the high school, 2 junior high schools, and about 10 grade schools - so when they close 308, all the schools are off.
