It sounds like NEA schools are not going to get the days they missed due to the ice storm waived by the Arkansas Dept. of Education. If you're like me and think this is outrageous, give them a call or a fax to let them know how you feel! Let them know that stuff that happens other places than central Arkansas matters & our kids have already been through enough!
The number is five zero one six eight two four four seven five. The fax is five zero one six eight two five one three six.

Give me a break......which is more important, the kids getting an education or a few more days to run aroound?? And what have they been through?? Some extra days at home to play? My kids didn't endure any extra hardships when the ice storm hit. They had a ball. We played games, read, talked. Made us realize we were watching way to much TV. If you want to get riled up about something, get riled up and start calling about the math teacher and the coach acting they way they did at school. Paragould has already informed their parents that their children will be going to school until June 4. An extra week...big deal.

I agree I want my children to make up the days that they missed because every grade is a building stone to the next. If they just skip the 9 days that they missed then when will they learn the stuff that they should have learned. I will have to change my plans a little for spring break and Maybe will have to change when we are leaving for the summer but I do want my children to learn as much as they can. Skipping any lesson would be stealing from them. They might not like the idea of having to make up the days but as adults we all should know what an education means and we should want the best for our kids. That is our job. And my family also realized that we watched TV to much. We played cards, monopoly, chess, checkers, domonos and many other games and really got to spend alot of time with each other. Our electric was out for more than 3 weeks and I don't think that my children had to much of a hardship. If anything I think that we all enjoyed spending time together and talking to each other.

the ice storm made all of us appreciate what we have. we cooked by candle light, set and talked, red books and we wound go outside and just listen to all the generators later on toward the end of it. i remember at first it was very quite outside and very dark, kinda spooky!

if you look at some of the trees you can tell they are broken in the tops but the leaves help hide it in the summer. Rector's mosquito program sucks! get out after 10 AND YOU R SUCKED DRY!
