Have you ever gone to school on a day you had off because you didn't know?
Yes, it was a happy surprise.
It was a snow day but nobody told me! Well it least it was a day off
It wasn't a holiday or anything. It got really really cold (for the location) and so the demand for gas was way to high. A few bigger institutions and whatnot closed for the day. There was no snow so I never checked the cancelations.
Of course I've indicated I was gifted
Not my school, but about two years ago, my daughter started attending a new, private school. We had a lot of snow overnight & I watched the TV station & listened to the radio for news of a cancellation. Her school wasn't on either list.
We bundled up & drove over to the school, through the snow, only to find the building locked tight. They used a text & phone based system for such notifications & somehow, I had been missed. They were VERY careful to keep me in the loop after that!
Once came home from school and took a nap. Woke up and saw it was seven. Got up and walked to school, only then to realize it was 7pm.
It was alright. I had student employment in the theatre, TV studio and radio station. I had keys so I went in and got some work done.
