Not in Denver Metro, but I spent a large portion of the time getting my desk at home under control, bonding with the dogs, running around doing errands and checking up on my stepdad. I also took a nap one day. Pretty good use of the time really.
We had two days off and I spent them both catching up. I got my tax documents together, visited in the community, and did some other household chores.
I was also thinking that it would be a great opportunity for teachers and students to take advantage of our district's online learning system. When the "snow" day was announced, teachers could create a lesson or lesson review and post it on their course. This way, students could log in and access their learning from home. For students without Internet access, they would need to make up the work upon returning.
Teachers could use Screentoaster to record a lesson and then provide an activity for students to complete.
What do you think? Would teachers, students, and parents go for it? Personally, I would (if it meant we wouldn't have to make up the day at the end of the year)!
