At 6.30am I checked my school's bad weather helpline - school still open
7.30am I checked my school's website - school open as usual, daughter and I set off
8.00am husband was sent home from work (he works near the Pennines; snowy and hilly) - my school still open, daughter and I battling through traffic to school.
1.30 pm our school buses turned up at lunchtime to take some kids home - school still open, staff stay put.
2.00 pm parents started turning up at school to collect their kids early - school still open, staff stay put.
3.25pm husband collected daughter from school (he doesn't often get the opportunity), popped over to my classroom to collect daughter's wellies and go home to make snowman - I, with my four pupils, have to stay put.
5.00pm after battling with traffic, I finally get home to see snowman daughter and husband have made. I empty my car of two bags full of marking to do this evening. Website says school still open tomorrow.
Update - Tuesday 3 Feb - husband still off work, me and daughter still in school!!!
SO NOT FAIR!!
