While I understand that you have the safety of staff and children in mind when you make the decision to close schools for snow days, I'm begging you: YOU CANNOT close schools and declare a snow day on January 5, 2009. Really. Our kids have been out of school for over three weeks. All children will be left behind at this rate. I think I speak on behalf of all west-side moms. The children need to go back to school. Really. Really-really-really. Pretty-pretty-please. With sugar on top. I don't have many resources, but if you take bribes I'm prepared to barter.
