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!

Hmm, maybe if we cut up a real lot of paper we could have snow??

The way I see it you school and break when you like. The state only cares you do your 180 days, that can be at midnight Sat if you so wish.

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!

Honey if I had snow days everytime I snows where I am moving I would probably score a snow day every single day from around the beginning of November!

If its REALLY storming (which happens every week or two) we will sometimes declare it a snow day and just do nothing!

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.

I am with Shery! If it snowed I would be out and rolling it with GLEE!

I haven't seen them cancel school except for floods. We wont be doing school thouse days unless we're in the car leaving. We take days off whenever. That's the best thing about homeschool.
