We all know the kids love a snow day, but I suspect this winter of delays, early dismissals and closings is putting a strain on the grown-ups. I've been hearing that teachers, assistants and others are struggling with how this affects their leave time, and I'm sure working parents are in a continual quest for emergency child care.
I'm also interested in tracking down more information about the blizzard of problems related to the state's PowerSchool data system (I know, lame transition). I keep hearing about things in bits and pieces, and some of you have voiced frustration that I haven't pulled back to do a big-picture look at what problems remain and how we got into this mess.
Let me know your thoughts, experiences and questions on either topic or both. Anonymous comments can be helpful in shaping queries, but I'd especially appreciate anyone willing to talk for a story. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704-358-5033. If you get voice mail, leave a message. Once the flakes start falling, I may go outside and play.
