Boy, nobody saw this coming, did they?
Snow days will be a thing of the past. That means the snow dance and wearing your pajamas inside-out just won't work this upcoming school year. Mother nature will not cancel learning. Instead, New York City students will have to shift to remote learning. ...
"Over the years, the DOE introduced additional holiday observances as part of the school calendar, and has contractual obligations which limit the number of possible school days," the department said in a statement. "The pandemic has also created the ability to switch seamlessly to remote learning, and DOE central and schools have distributed hundreds of thousands of devices to ensure that learning can continue remotely during school closures."
Oh, they think that the "switch" to "remote learning" is "seamless?" You're telling me they actually believe that??
Beyond the misery of spending yet more days in front of Chromebooks, you're now taking away one of the most precious parts of many childhoods — waking up to a blanket of snow and discovering an unexpected, joyous, responsibility-free day off of school.
It's a wonderful and magical experience that 1,000,000 more children will never get to experience.
Remember: If you live in New York it's never too late to pack up all your stuff and get the heck out of there!
