NYC schools will be open Friday. It is extremely cold, snowy and icy. Please be careful getting to and from school.
I was asked in the comments if we had snow days to spare this school year. The answer is we should. NYC teachers are reporting for work 185 days for the 2017-18 school year. 4 conference days are permitted within the state required minimum 180 school days. We should have enough snow days available this year.
Our neighbor to the north, Yonkers, will be closed on Friday. My guess is many other districts will close too. NYC schools are open while surrounding districts are closed or have delayed openings. Now it feels normal. One day of sanity was quite enough, thank you.
My back is aching a bit after shoveling the car out earlier. Thanks to my neighbor for using his snow blower to help me out. I will probably get plowed in again overnight. Regardless, NYC teachers, parents and students will do our best tomorrow. Please be safe. I hope the streets are clear and the buses and trains run on time.
