Ridgewood NJ, we have said it be for ,the COVID virus has been speeding up the implementation of  remote technologies ,be it work from home or learn from home . The use of remote learning during the COVID19 pandemic has increased the likelihood the snow days may be a thing of the past .

Sorry to all the grand parents who over the years have spent snow days with their grand children but thirty-nine percent of principals and district leaders say their district has converted snow days to remote learning days, and another 32 percent say their districts are considering the change, according to an EdWeek Research Center survey conducted earlier this month.

  1. If they know some kind of storm is coming a hurricane, snow storm, or some kind of local or state emergency, yes they should go full remote. And if your child is not feeling well, they should have the opportunity to do their schoolwork from home.

  2. So sad to think snow days might be a thing of the past. So much fun for kids.

  3. Oh come on. Big deal

  4. Oh come on. The teachers union will NEVER give up a reason to have a paid day off.

  5. Are you familiar with how snow days work on school calendars, brainiac? “Snow days” do not just cause a day to magically disappear off the school calendar — it is made up later in the year.

  6. always nice to get a day off in the middle of the winter.
    they won’t give this up.
