Here in Colorado, every little section is their own school district.
It really doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, but then I grew up outside of Houston, and Houston was one giant happy school district. Well I don't know about happy, but they were there.
So since there are so many school districts, every one of them can pick and choose what snow days that they want. That's great.......until you realize that businesses follow the schedule of the school district in which they reside.
So we are in 11 for school, except for Junior who is in 8, we reside in 8, but Girl Scouts is based off of district 20. no worries because one of Abbie's doctor's appointments goes of district 2. But then there is another who doesn't close at all. So while we are having frigid temperatures, I am trying to monitor all of the closings to see what appointments we have and who is going to school.
In all my brilliance, I signed up to get texts from the news channel on which districts would have delays or closing. The first text went through a couple weeks ago.....at 4:30 AM. Really? Let me sleep in a little before you start texting! Of course I was up after that and unable to sleep, which worked out since I only signed up for one district and not the other 5 that I apparently need to be monitoring as well.
