Day 76 (of 187) the calm before/after the storm….?
Is it proactivity? Is it predictability? Is it something else?? But after a week of chaos – ranging from our Winter Concert and then a whole-town power outage (thus no school) when everyone came back for the last two days of school….well, all the students at least as we had 6 adult absences!!
So yes, one student did go home early – but she had been feeling sick all week and was trying to power through…
But for the most part – things were quiet….and I get nervous when schools are too quiet…
The usual questions that had already been answered – about Winter Wonderland (which had been scheduled for the power outage day is rescheduled to Friday- and yes, kids are allowed to bring hockey sticks) Yes we were adapting schedules to make sure the right people were working together…..Yes if the storm got worse we would have an in-day (it didn’t though many in the lower mainland had a rough day – including many power outages which always complicates the plan for the day).
But even my usual visitors were just stopping by to say hi and that they were having a good day….which I hope continues on the final friday of 2018 because we will continue to have some absences as colds and flus are running rampant….hmmm maybe that’s why everyone is a bit more docile??
So…not much more to do than enjoy the quiet and hope it is the calm after the storm that was blowing through out community – yes, I have now had two umbrellas destroyed this winter….my wife has now banned me from using one (growing up in a desert climate I guess I don’t have enough experience with those portable rain shelters – challenge accepted!)
Happy last day eve!
