    I'm jealous! Nothing like that ever happened to me when I was in school :mad:

    It would be really funny if this was some kind of joke a few students were playing. Can you imagine the entire student population not turning up (except for maybe a few ppl who didn't check their email) :D

    does the term "union free" mean that the school doesn't use or union workers / have a teachers union?

    Just curious.

    Snow days. Hehe. I feel sorry for current kids in Minnesota. It use to be that you would get a snowday at least once a winter here in MN. More often then not twice. I haven’t seen snow that could cause a snowday in the last 7+ years.

    Me neither. Of course, back in my day, we didn't take days off for snow. I remember walking to school in the snow, often times up to my thighs, uphill both ways. And don't get me started on the wind chill...

    Seriously, it seems odd that the notification would be in the form of an e-mail. I'm assuming there was also a TV/radio notice as well, which is how it was handled back in the "old" days.

    Even my son's preschool, out here in the boonies, cancels school by email.

    When I was a kid, they would set off the town fire signal to alert the kids of no school. I think it was something like 3 short blasts every half hour meant no school.

    Did a Google Search and couldn't find a definition - but a ton of Union Free schools. Whatever it means.

    I did a search on it too, and I searched the school website also. Hmm, just curious. I thought Unions were a good thing - or Walmart could be saying "shop at Walmart: Union Free and Proud" :rolleyes:

    My Monday morning surprise was that my car had a hard time getting going at first, it sounded and acted like the transmission was going out and I could smell something burning as I'm travelling down the freeway. I was really freaking out because this thing has had a history of almost being to the point were its just going to die since I got it almost a year ago so I called my dad to ask advice on what to do and called my boss telling him I probably wouldn't make it today because my car finally bit the dust.

    So I drove back home to park it for the time being, it still smelled and as I reached for the key I looked down and saw my problem.
    The parking brake had only halfway disengaged. :rolleyes:

    Naturally I fully disengaged it and drove off and everything was fine.

    I hate this car.

    I've been in this district for 10 years and I still don't know what a Union Free school district is! :p

    By the way, if anybody wants to poke around the district website to find out be my guest:

    I know. It means that our school doesn't interline or pool resources with other school districts in the area. ie: Buffalo Schools with Niag. Falls schools sharing snowplows for the parking lots. We own all of our own stuff and if we need anything, we buy/lease it privately. That's all.


    (cheapo Buffalo schools!)
