Yesterday Las Vegas received an incredible amount of snow and by the end of the day there was very little visibility. The school district decided to cancel all sports games and other on-campus activities Wednesday evening.
The district announced that they would decide by 4:00 a.m. on Thursday if school would be canceled. All evening my students were calling and texting me to see if there was going to be school.
At 8:30 p.m. the announcement was made that there would be no school on Thursday "for the protection and safety of the students." Tiffany and I were thrilled. I had a stack of projects that needed to be completed before I left town for the holidays and having the extra day was a much needed blessing.
The amusing part of this story is the fact that when I woke up on Thursday morning there was a little bit of snow on the ground and by mid-morning everything had melted. I have included two pictures; the first shows the only snow at our apartment and the second picture shows the view of my high school from my front porch...not much snow to be seen.
Tomorrow is our last day of school before winter break and I am curious about how many of my students will end up attending.
