Today the district that I work in had a 2-hour delay. This was due to the icy conditions from the freezing rain overnight. Originally today we were scheduled to administer the ACT to the juniors and the sophomores were going to take a practice ACT. This meant that the seniors were not going to be in class.
With the 2-hour delay we were changed to a regular attendance day for all students. While many of the seniors were disappointed that their plans changed, it’s always important to try and find the silver lining. 1) By not cancelling school, we won’t have to make it up later. 2) Seniors will get an opportunity to have college visits on the 17th when the ACT is rescheduled for the Juniors and Sophomores. 3) All of the students had the opportunity to sleep in extra before coming in to school.
