Hey! Students who wailed away…

…on my bus this morning and on Twitter about schools needing to be closed today!

Listen up.

Legit reasons to close schools:

  • Power outage
  • Water outage
  • Major snowstorm / freezing rain event that puts staff and / or students at risk of physical harm
  • Earthquakes – big ones
  • Invasion by aliens
  • Invasion by the U.S. or other former superpower
  • Locusts – big ones

Not a legit reason:

  • Major storm 500 km away that may cause things to get a bit breezy in Ottawa

Sheesh!

Back in MY day, we walked to school in raging snowstorms with -55F temps! That’s FAHRENHEIT, KIDS! AND WE WORE NEWSPAPER ON OUR FEET CUZ WE COULDN’T AFFORD BOOTS!

Sheesh. Kids these day…
