Hey, what are you doing with the kids on the snow day?

News-DemocratMarch 3, 2014 

The BND would like to talk to parents of school-age children about their snow day plans.

Do mom and dad alternate who takes off work? Is there a go-to stay-at-home friend in the neighborhood you've already imposed upon? How many times has your child been shipped to grandma's because school has been cancelled?

If you're taking off work -- again -- to stay home with your children, are you making up time later or burning sick days and vacation days? Is your child at work with you?

The BND would like to share your ideas with other parents in the same situation. Please email Mary Cooley with your contact info at mcjones@bnd.com
