Not only do I get to enjoy my children and my husband all day long instead of having peace and quiet in which to suffer this horrible sinus/throat crud my husband gave me, but I learned of this joyful development at 5:30 am.
Apparently the long-standing tradition of staring at the bottom of the television screen, waiting to see if your school’s name comes up, isn’t good enough anymore. Since we don’t have to catch an early bus, we always get to sleep until 6:30. But the district decided to use the AlertNow system this time, which calls every phone listed on the students’ contact forms. At 5:30 am. Nice for a lockdown or early dismissal, but overkill for a snow day.
