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