School closing - not!

Today I went to a school that "didn't" close for snow.  In fact, Mary Queen of Peace rarely closes for weather.  I talked to the principal, who told me parents at that school expect their children to attend and administrators try to make that happen.  It is a Catholic school, doesn't operate busses, and doesn't have some of the transportation safety concerns that public schools and those operating bus systems do.  I talked to several students.  One said she was hoping for a snow day, but another said if he goes one more day to school he will be that much more educated that others.  Clearly, I was a slackoff in school.  I was firmly in the camp of praying for snow days.  And in South Carolina... they didn't come very often.
