lol, I know I am asking a lot of ?'s bear with me please, lol. Ok, so, do you follow your local schools rules for closings? Do you have Snow Days or still have school anyway? If you still have class, what do you do? Do you do anything different? Do you do extra fun activities?
I'm a sucker for a good day of playing in the snow....and it takes ALOT of snow for our local schools to get closed (at least a few feet) so we'll probably be taking advantage of lots of "snow days", especially if there will be other kids out to play with!

I can tell you that if it HAPPENS to snow here in Louisiana that we surely WILL NOT be doing school . We would be having a snow day for sure...even if it was a think layer of snow on the ground.
As far as taking off when the school does, yes, we do follow the school holidays. I do this because I never want the kids to think they are cheated in any way...that the school kids get holidays that they don't. Also, their friends and neighbors are off so I want them to all be able to play together. I try to make their 1 week Thanksgiving break and their 2 week Christmas break the same time as well. It just works out better that way. As for the end of the school year, I timed it pretty close to the school this year...within days. However, if we stay on my schedule for this year, we should finish about 6 weeks before the public school .

I follow no rules (well except for submitting the appropriate paperwork). For the past two years we've lived in Georgia and now that we're back in New York, I'm sure snow days will be a lot more fun! The only "snow day" we'll have is the one where the kids get dressed up and go play in the white, fluffy stuff!

I know this is a bit of an old post, but I thought I'd add my 2 cents.
We do have snow days if the PS are closed for snow. That way, The Kids don't feel "left out". Now, that being said, it only snows about once a year here, maybe twice, so the schools might be closed two or three days at most over the course of the school year.
