Just how many snow days do we get anyway?

There's lots of speculation about just how many snow days we have and what we will do IF we go over. We have 5 days allotted for this calendar year. Should unexpected closures be forced upon us, there's a couple of ways to handle it. One of the least painful and noticeable ways is to extend the school day by 5 minutes or so.
Ultimately, it's the school board's decision and we will leave that discussion for when we need it. Decisions about closures are based on what's appropriate, not if we are trying to meet or avoid a pre-determined number.
In the meantime, it was a good first day back and our schools missed their students!
Thanks for hanging in there with us while we get through this weather system.
