Your Guide to Remote Snow School Day (and all the fun things to do in the snow!)

As many parents know, snow days have been a thing of the past since the pandemic. Many parents will be reminded of this today. Expecting an upcoming snowstorm, the Mayor’s office announced on Monday February 12th that all New York schools will be remote in anticipation of the predicted 3 to 5 inches (or more!) in the city and additional inches upstate.

While some kids are pros at this remote thing now, you may need to catch up. The good news is schools are prepared for this, and you should have received emails or calls on what must be done to work remote. Or you can be like us, message the school on ClassDojo, and get a handle on what will be a stay-at-home day for the family.

Many of us haven’t had a remote snow day for some time, so it is necessary to stay in the loop; all the handles that will help keep you updated:
