Mail.app was all excited this morning over (see attachment) and so am I!
I'm jealous! Nothing like that ever happened to me when I was in school
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)
Wow - all mondays should start like this
I never tried that in my entire career of being a school-child
I read this email before you Matt, I was up at 5:30 so BOO YAH!
Anyways, yeah - mail.app was happy to give me that email this morning .
does the term "union free" mean that the school doesn't use or union workers / have a teachers union?
Funny, it was sent at 6:09 AM, (and I got the school text message at this time too)
and since when do you call me Matt?
I did NOT say I read it at 5:30 did I? Ha, boo yah once again tall skinny kid.
Who read it first is disputable, but thank you for the naming correction
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 havent seen snow that could cause a snowday in the last 7+ years.
This is the greatest winter ever. I think we had like 1 significant snowfall.
nice. I get the day off too. but... (see attachment)
Don't you love teacher inservices?
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.
I get mine via Text message and email, they also throw them on a crawl on the NBC, CBS, and ABC affiliates here if Buffalo. Blizzard watch now if effect :d
why is your school Union Free? Is that a good thing?
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"
That's just wrong.
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.
Naturally I fully disengaged it and drove off and everything was fine.
I hate this car.
Sounds like it may not like you all that much either.
I've been in this district for 10 years and I still don't know what a Union Free school district is!
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!)
