Severe Winter Weather: A Little Levity with a Serious Issue

While experiencing the effects of a severe winter here is a little levity. The Durham Academy’s school Head, Michael Ulku-Steiner and¬†Assistant Head of School/Upper School Director Lee Hark make a¬†weather announcement. This is cute and funny.

The seriousness is the increased number of school closures due to the severity of this winter. I know schools are dealing with how students are going to make up the time lost to snow/ice days in thousands of school districts. The number of school closure days due to snow and ice where I live in south-eastern PA is about 10 now. If we stay in this severe pattern, we will probably experience a few more. South eastern PA school students will now be in school on holidays, such as this Monday’s Presidents Day. They may even lose all the days for Spring Break and/or remain in school until July. Not good…not good at all!

Thanking the Super Linemen

Many of us, including my household dealt with the loss of power in the last 2 months due to a very rough record-breaking winter. I want to thank the linemen everywhere who spend so many hours in the snow and ice repairing the electrical lines so we can get our power back. Again thank you so much! As this Varvel editorial cartoon depicts, you are all Superman.
