Before you get too excited, I want to make sure you're aware that as of right now, the Winter Storm Warning for our area has been CANCELLED! Still, stranger things have happened, and we could very well wake up tomorrow morning with lots of snow on the ground and either a two-hour delay or no school.
*Listening for the sound of children cheering*
Either way, this creates the perfect opportunity for a post on our blog about Snow Days. First, let's talk about the facts. If your student is a Foundations Christian School student, he or she will not have school, or will have a two-hour delay if the Horseheads School District does not have school. So, listen carefully to the news, check the news stations' weather and closings updates on Facebook, or sign up to have them email you or text you the latest school closing information.
If there is a two-hour delay, our school day will begin at 10:00 am, and it will conclude at the regular time.
Now that the informational portion of this post has been taken care of, we'd love to know how you and your kids spend your snow days. Many families settle down before the television, pop some popcorn, and watch movies all day. This can be a fun treat for your kids, especially if you have some DVDs you've been keeping a secret for just such an occasion. Perhaps you dare to venture out into the snow when it starts to slow down and engage in a friendly snowball fight. Or, maybe you're just as happy to stay inside and do some arts and crafts with your kids. No matter what your plans are, it's important to have them, just in case we do get a snow day. It's going to happen eventually, so make sure you're prepared!
