Snow Days

Recently, the Williamsburg area has been hit with insane amounts of snow and wintry conditions and we took some time out from school for it. What a blessing that was, let me tell you! But the bad part is having to make up the days we miss. I don't remember having to do that in any other place that I have worked so it's a bit of a shock to the teaching system! So far, we've had to make up one day from the big Nor'easter and one day from the big snow storm. So it hasn't been that bad altogether but I'm just hoping there are no more days off due to weather!! I can't be stuck here making them up as I try to get as much out of this country as possible before moving on to Turkey.

Yep...each state has a minimum amount of days that the students are required by law to attend school. The districts usually build in a couple of "snow days" but once those are used up, the rest have to be made up! Luckily for my boys Oregon has one of the shortest minimum amounts in the country LOL.
