Approaching record number of snow days

It was another 'snow day' for thousands of kids across Grey Bruce on Tuesday.

For some, such as Meaford and Thornbury students, its day number 15 of canceled buses while students on the Peninsula - Lion's Head/Tobermory are at 14; Wiarton/Hepworth/Sauble Beach at 13. 

All other zones are at 11 or less. 

Officials with the Bluewater District School Board tell Dock News its certainly one for the books this year with the number of days off school approaching their historical range. 

High school students have already seen the impact of the bus cancellations when their exam schedules were pushed back by two weeks.  

Eventually the board made them optional.  

And they say despite almost three weeks of missing lesson plans, teachers always find a way to ensure curriculum expectations are met having already built some snow days into the schedule.
