ditto what Imogene said.

All around us schools are closed for flooding- but not here (and I know we have it). All I know is that this weather is playing havoc with my head

I had a good night's sleep, but I'd sure never know it. I'm struggling to keep my eyes open and could cheerfully go crawl back in to bed for a nap. Not a good thing at the start of the day!

*sigh* EVERY single county around us is closed- we have 8 flippin days built into our schedule and we have NEVER used all of them. This morning it was so bad I could barely see two feet in front of me. ridiculous- there should have at least been a delay so that I could see the standing water on the interstate-blech

Evening!

Checking in since it's Tuesday night. Dh is at a meeting (again) so I'm recording NCIS so we can watch it on Thursday night. Hopefully they have a good conclusion to the 2 parter.

g'evening... well I waited till 10:45 to leave to fetch the ice nice drive over packed snow for miles but did between 60+ for most of it...

coming home *groan* I kid you not the mph on my truck was at zero ( had to be going 1 mph because, we were rolling up hilll) barely... snowplow with some kind of ice crunching thing was at the head of the traffic going up the hill sideways. ( so there was not enough room for anyone to go around it...)

long drive.
once we got to the top of the first mountain it pulled over and let the traffic go by.

Hopefully you get a day off tomorrow to relax. Do you go on ice runs by yourself or does someone usually go with you?

So what happens at the end of the year when you have left over snow days?

We have Castle and the second Bones from last night to watch too. It's a good thing that we only watch 3 shows together or we'd never keep caught up. Make that 4 shows, I forgot about Psych, whenever that comes back on.

Misse- we just lose them. We go longer per day/or something of the sort to accumulate the 8 days.

I hope it is a good conclusion too. I'll have to watch it on demand either tomorrow or Thursday or Friday since I went to stitching tonight.

What do you mean you lose them? So you just go the extra days that you don't need for snow (above the 180 required days or whatever the number is in TN) or do you get out earlier than posted on the calendar? We do it different here and I'm slightly confused.

Here's a link to our calendar: Knox County Schools - KCS Calendar for 2012-13

Here's what it says at the bottom of the calendar:
Calendar Summary

175 Instructional Days (excludes days earned through extended hours)

4 Scheduled Administrative Days

1 Unscheduled Parent-Teacher Contact Hours (formerly Teacher-Parent Conference Day)

4 Scheduled Inservice Days

3 Unscheduled Inservice Days

3 Staff Development Days

10 Vacation Days

200 Days


Instructional days canceled due to inclement weather will be rescheduled as follows:
a. First eight days missed: use days earned by extended hours.
b. Next two days missed: change from administrative days to instructional days – May 23 and 24, 2013
c. Additional days missed: extend the school year through May 31, 2013.

I am assuming that the 10 days of vacation days are our 10 days "built in" (as noted in a and b) so I guess they are part of contract but we actually go so it adds up to more than the 175 days (and not sure why 175 over 180)

So what are your extended hours? Do you just go an extra 1/2 hour or something beyond the school day of other schools? Do you have extended hours all school year or only if you go over your weather days?

I like the 3 unscheduled inservice days too. No clue what it means, but it sounds interesting.
