Isn’t the school required to utilize a certain number of snow days per year? Normally, we would have extra snow days in May, but don’t you think it would be more reasonable to have a few more in the winter, even though there is not much snow this year? I know from mine and other students’ experiences that December-February is a very stressful time and everyone is incredibly grateful for a snow day. In the past, Shen has given a snow day for a small amount of snow, and considering how slippery the roads are, wouldn’t it be wisest to cancel school? We have only used one snow day so far.

Hi Shen! Did u forget to post the Acadia award breakfast from Friday that honored several middle school students on Facebook? It was very special to the students and their families to be recognized.
