No school today, of course, and with none of the secondary roads plowed around my way and another 6-12" of snow coming on Tuesday, I don't see how we can have school this week. In previous snow experiences here in Baltimore, I was able to get up and around - I'm from Michigan, damn it, so I can take this stuff - but, this time, I'm a complete shut-in. I can walk around the block. No one has driven on our street yet and I'm not expecting to be able to get out of here anytime soon. In other words, it's bad.
I'm already pretty much banking on being out of school all week, though with an outside shot of being in school on Friday. So, where does that leave us? I currently have around 55 days of class left with the seniors, who take their first IB exam for my course on May 4th. I am not teaching an HSA course, but those tests start at the beginning of May as well. Will IB, or, at the very least, the state of Maryland, change testing requirements because of all the missed school days? Or might we be forced to attend school during our spring break instead? I'm really not sure what will happen, nor do I know what I would do if I were in charge (actually yes I do - I'd push back the exam dates for as many days as we've lost), but it will certainly be an issue for the rest of the school year.
Back to catching up on my reading.
