In the last few weeks, Doug Bray and Kala Morrissey provided great wisdom about snow-day social media, and I have to say I agree with them. Like Doug, we added hundreds of followers during the recent storms, and like Kala, we found it important to communicate early and often.
As I commiserated with my MOSPRA and KanSPRA colleagues today at lunch over the beating we are all taking from parents and students, I decided we could all use a little laugh at all the snow drama.
So here, for your amusement, are some of the best student tweets we received this week (names redacted, of course):
@ParkHillSchools we need another snow day tomorrow! I’m going to die if I have to wake up early!! Please cancel school xo
Don’t do me like that bb plz no skool @ParkHillSchools
@ParkHillSchools If you make me drive to school tomorrow, I will wreck and be stuck on the side of the road at -12 degrees

Park Hill will be putting all of our lives in danger if they make us go to school tomorrow
@ParkHillSchools do you want to be the cause of my suffering tomorrow? Because I don’t think you want that on your conscience.
