Holding Down the Fort…

solar vortex

at Georgetown!   Even though it is FREEZING COLD and WINDY and SNOWY all around Georgetown, the inside is filled with 12 super special snow bound kids:  Aiden, Kaycie, Remi, Jordan, CJ, Evan, Dylan, Rachel, Jack, Alyssa, Sofia and Talia.  They have the gym, cafeteria, library and hallways ALL TO THEMSELVES because they were here for BEFORE SCHOOL CARE due to the delay.

Although it is fun to have the school all to yourselves, we are really tired of winter and the cold and the POLAR VORTEX.  We will gladly welcome a SOLAR VORTEX of some kind or another!

Surviving the 2014 Polar Vortex

polar vortexThe extreme cold weather has expanded our vocabulary with words/phrases such as:  polar vortex, drifting, wind chill, accumulation, lake effect, advisory, warning, etc.  While working on this post, I searched for a “I survived t-shirt” and of course a screen printing company has sissiesseized the moment!  Although I do have to say, that I do believe that this t-shirt sums up our state hardiness best.

Even though roads are still extremely slick, I am very hopeful that the conditions improve for tomorrow morning.  I am more than ready to have everyone back to school.

Please PLEASE make sure you send your child to school with ample outdoor clothing.  We will not send the children outdoors for recess if wind chills are below zero — but keep in mind this can change throughout the day.  I want all the children to be protected if they are outdoors — even if walking to and from the busses.

Also, the school will be chilly inside as well.  It will take sometime for our system to catch up and heat all the rooms evenly.   Layers of indoor clothing will be helpful for these cold winter days.

Looking forward to getting the second half of the year started!  Mrs. Reagan
