Text at 8am that school will open at 10:30. Just got another one saying that school will be open then but if you can get in then it doesnt matter and wont affect attendance.

I know it was last minute (rained overnight and then froze, I have never seen a road that is literally an ice rink before), but surely a blanket closure would be more sensible?

and I forgot to fill in the T's on the thread title grin

Ha ha, I thought from your title that you must be drunk grin

I agree that just shutting the school in the first place would make the most sense.

Oh my word that title fgrin
YANBU. Don't send the dc today, just curl up and watch Christmas films.

Oh, and yes, keep DC off and enjoy an extra day to the weekend.

If school don't seem too fussed whether they turn up or not, I would keep them off, especially if it's primary, nothing much ever happens in the last few days before Christmas anyway.

I need to know about the 'ts' too!

They might be doing their best to keep the school open so that they can go ahead with things that the children have been looking forward to. Was there anything planned for today like Christmas lunch or something?

happypoobum Fri 15-Dec-17 10:13:53

Never mind your AIBU, tell us about the Ts

cheeriosatdawn Fri 15-Dec-17 10:18:08

@happypoobum : yes yes. The dark tale of the missing t's...good way to start the day. So: OP: what's the story?

MiraiDevant Fri 15-Dec-17 10:18:12

I used to have a typewriter (The Tripewriter) which was reluctant to use e's and r's, but since going technical this has never been a problem

Ours was open as normal but I don't know how many made it in on time, we were 15mins late and there were so many others they abandoned signing in on the screen and we're just writing down names and sending them through!

I was about to turn around and go home when I realised how icy it was but then DD said 'I don't want to miss the Christmas party' so we battled on. Had enough of it now, hope it thaws and stays thawed.

wha happened o he 's?

crunchymint Fri 15-Dec-17 10:39:34

I would keep them at home if you prefer to, I actually like what your school have done as it means parents who work and can get their children in, don't have the last minute nightmare caused by no childcare and pressure from work.

What did you do to the T's?
