First Snow Day

The one-woman-snow-day-notification-machine has been put back into gear. Our first snow day of the 2015-2016 school year has arrived and with it, the family contact.

“Hey Ms. I have a question for you. Is there school tomorrow because on the Boston public schools it says there is no school tomorrow?” texted a girl in my class.

Um yes, sweatheart. If the official website says there is no school, there is no school. I’m not the higher power in this scenario.

“Hola buenas noches. Una pregunta mañana viernes hay classes???” from a dad who seems to like question marks.

Once I reassured him, I received four applause emoji in return. The funniest part about this is that he is not an efusive guy. He’s a large, serious Dominican man who always seems tired and annoyed at his puckish son. Not one I’d expect to send applause emoji.

I haven’t yet created a Spanish robo call, but it’s never too late.
