Pitt County Schools Announce Snow Make-Up Day

While some Pitt County students may be hoping for another snow day this week, they'll be paying for one already used this winter.

Schools in Pitt County were closed February 1st because of snow and now that make-up day will be this coming Friday, March 5th. Students originally had Friday off as a teacher workday, but now it's a school day for both students and staff.

    ENGLISH TEACHER needs to lighten up. I got Amazed's point. He was trying to say something positive, and you shot him down. By the way, OH GREAT ENGLISH TEACHER ... you didn't have a period at the end of your sentence. [heheheee]

    Just had to comment on Amazed who congratulated people on proper grammar and then spelled "comrade" wrong - heheheee. It's hard to get everything perfect in this day and age of texting/instant messaging

    Homeboy, I could not care less about grammar on this blog, someone below criticized me, so I facetiously responded to that nonsense. As far as you having more education than me...you sound like on this snow day, you should be catching up on what you missed in primary school. Furthermore, I do not *need* to feel better about myself...I am already awesome!

    The workdays gives teachers a chance to catch up on the paper work and write lesson plans for their students. There are not 8 workdays a month. In fact in there is only 1 more workday before the last day of school this school year.

    My pleasure Kim. I really do LOVE my job!! And Amazed, as a Special Education high school teacher, I get all your acronyms ;). My count to summer is 3 months, 1 week, and 6 days! :) Fortunately my county does all in-service training during the school year so my summers pretty much belong to me and my children. Although teaching is very challenging at times, I would do nothing else.

    To "Pam" and all the other teachers --- THANK YOU for sticking to your educated guns and using proper grammar. I am a high school English teacher who knows the difference between "alot" and "a lot" and "can not" and "cannot." Even though we work ourselves to the bone (er ... pencil point), we know that 180 days is not long enough to educate the unknowing with the LDs using ET and SR because of RAUR on their IEPs and 504s when the real problems are the PARENTs. Hang in there, my fellow comrads! Twelve more weeks until more summer staff development! See you on Groupwise! :)

    A teacher has to control 20 plus students in a classroom. Classroom management is an art; it is the heart of the education system. Non-teachers think that cirriculum is the most important aspect of being a teacher; wrong answer. Classroom management is the key. Now, when a student misses a day of school, that places an additional burden on the teacher; collecting assignments, passing out the missed assignment. And when teachers are out of the classroom, either a personnel day or sick day, it creates additional work for the teacher; substitute lesson plans, with the added burden of the quality of substitute that will be in the classroom. As one person stated, the teaching profession is at the bottom of the educated career ladder. As a commercial a few years ago where the parent encourages the child to go into medical or law, where the child could make a difference, the child states but who teaches the future lawyer of doctor. Do not knock a teache until you spend time in school.

    I just want to say..Thanks Pam and all the other teachers out there- you have my children 40 hours a week and you teach, watch, and discipline them. you are a second parent. thanks for encouraging them to be something in life- as well as coaching football, cheer-leading, soccer, and all the other extra curriculum activities in school as well. I greatly appreciate everything you do for my child and think you very much need your teacher work days. if we left it up to parents like Dave below.... my children would be saying " you want fries with dat"??
