Update – Snow Days: My Kid is Spending his Snow Days Teleworking


The boy, 12, gives his snow day smirk on day three of completing assignments at home.

By Zerline Hughes

As I sit in the kitchen working on client projects, my son has been in the living room since 10 this morning with his laptop open. No, not watching Netflix or playing games. And no, not to brush up on a subject or two since school has been out for a few snow days. It’s because of “the way snow days work” at his school.

On snow days, middle schoolers are to check in by 10:30 a.m. on their online portals for assignments. Sheesh! He’s like an essential government employee who is working from home on important, time-sensitive projects.

Oh, and no; it wasn’t read a chapter, answer a question. This dude is working on Spanish, algebra, history, English. He was even looking for a Bible to complete the first five chapters of John for religion class.

Man! I had to make him stop and take a nap by 4 p.m.

mathHe says he can’t wait to go back to school just so he doesn’t have to stay here at the house and do school work.

But, again, I can’t complain. This is what I wanted for him. We’re certainly getting our money’s worth.

And he’s gonna’ be a hard working man, ready to work, ready to make his own choices, and ready to defy all odds.
