This morning I got up and ready for school like I usually do, even though I knew that we wouldn't be having classes. We're still under a blizzard warning, interstates and highways are closed and no travel is advised on those other roads that aren't closed.
Needless to say, I was quite surprised to receive a phone call this morning telling me we were having classes. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Apparently the school is sending out buses where possible (which I can't imagine is too many places) and that we'll be starting only an hour late. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! The interstate from my home to my school is closed. There is no way I can get there unless I try taking the back roads, which if the interstate isn't drivable means those roads are really not drivable. Classes at every other school around here have been cancelled, so apparently this weather is a big deal. Shouldn't my school be able to see this?
I am fuming right now. I'm upset with my school that in order to get this day to count as a day of classes, they are wiling to risk the safety and well-being of the bus drivers, the students, and teachers. While I don't see school in my cards today (it's hard to drive somewhere when the roads are not open), I am upset that this counts against me as one of my personal days (of which we only get two). I'm extremely disappointed in our administration and their poor thinking this morning.
