We had some snowdays and then the school assigned online homework during spring break to make up for it. We had vacation planned and my daughter had to log on to do the stupid work. There was a pretty significant amount of pushback and very few actually did the work.
Add on top of that five half days at then end of the year where nothing gets done (grades are already submitted) and my wife had to burn vacation days to cover.
What a joke.

We had that BS here.

That sounds even worse, like they're trying to maximize the inconvenience for everyone involved. Someone should tell "educators" that kids are way over-supervised, and would be better off spending more time in the wild.
