I talked to my brother tonight. He said his kids have been in school 7 or 8 days since Christmas and have missed 21 days. The super has declared mandatory Saturday school for all students (weather permitting) until further notice. Their state has a law that states school must be out by June 10th. There is also a law about 180 days in the classroom. The super said they will be breaking a law, they just don't know which one yet. He said there have been several days when he has taken the girls to school at 7:45 just to get a call to come pick them up before 8:30 because they were closing. We have missed 5 days so far this year and any other days that we miss will go onto the end of the school year, but I sure am glad we aren't dealing with what he is dealing with this winter.
