Schools Out?

I remember only two official snow days, both during the Blizzard of  ’77 which was dubbed by some journalists ‘White death’. I do recall several notices of schools being open to those who could make it. My sister and I ALWAYS made it. We would rather incur the wrath of the wind driven snows than that of my parents. It shocks me that a few centimeters of snow and scattered white outs will give our children yet another holiday and time to nestle in front of social dumbing, and mind dulling electronics. Give them an extra hour in class daily. And a half day every other Saturday dedicated to the arts and physical activity. It wouldn’t hurt to shorten summer vacation by a week and to discuss the necessity of spring break. All to their self betterment and a more promising future for Canada as a whole.
