3 phone calls

The first phone call was at 5am from Superintendent Jamie Benson. The School District of River Falls cancelled for Monday, January 28.

The second phone call while I was at school (teacher's are required to come in for the day). The School District of River Falls will have a 2 hour early release on Tuesday, January 29, all day off on Wednesday, January 30 and a 2 hour late start on Thursday, January 31. That boils down to--I will dismiss my students at 1:35 on Tuesday and welcome them back to the classroom at 10:45am on Thursday.

The final phone call came about 2 hours ago. The School District of River Falls will be closed Tuesday, January 29th and Wednesday, January 30th with a 2 hour late start on Thursday, January 31st.

I'm thinking I will be bringing Osten to my school to run off some steam tomorrow. I may also need to run off some steam...
