10 Reasons to Close the School

Working in a school setting, I get excited by the prospect of extra days off. See, as much as I enjoy the work I do, it’s still work. And who wouldn’t rather sleep late on a Tuesday if you’re able to? Especially when the alternative is waking up at 5:30 a.m. to get ready for the day. So I thought there might be some good reasons for the school to get shut down.
