Cold weather so no school?
Well global warming still has not shown up here in Virginia, so it was 10 deg this morning which is really really cold for us. So last night I turned the TV and noticed that most local schools (only government schools) had canceled for the day. I thought maybe the forecast had changed to included snow but no snow in the forecast. So I started to wonder why they would cancel school. The only reason is that they did not want to have the kids standing out in the cold to wait for the bus. That would be the reason that most of the private schools were still open. Usually this would not bug me but then they started canceling preschools, which Quin's was one of them. This makes no sense. None of the preschools that I know of have buses. Parents drop the kids off in the warm cars and then they go into a warm building. The only reason I can think that they would cancel preschool is that they wanted to help the kids prepare for school when they cancel school for no reason at all. Please help me understand why they cancel preschool.
