Snow Day Setbacks

By Staff Writer Daushenae Hinton

The recent snowstorm in Washington left many teachers’ learning plans postponed. From Feb. 10 to Feb. 14, North Thurston Public Schools cancelled every school day due to snow and uncleared sidewalks. Many teachers expressed their problems with the missed week of school including freshman English teacher, Beau Pocklington. “I had to get rid of an entire project because we’re not going to have time to do it,” said Pocklington.

Students expressed their distaste on the snow as well. “I thought that [the snow] was kind of a bummer [because we have] to make up all of those school days at the end of the [school] year,” said freshman Jesse Belloso. The snow had pushed back many crucial assignments. Others similarly to Belloso have said that when they arrived back at school, the learning concepts in their classes weren’t easy to recall due to the long break.

Teachers have also acknowledged that having too many breaks in school takes a toll on what students retain in class.“[The unexpected break] put us behind a whole week, the goal is to get done with all the material before spring break so that you can start reviewing before the SBA test,” said math teacher Kristine Mosher.

Many students and staff members lost power or were stuck at home due to the icy road conditions. The power outage affected many Timberline students, including Timberline freshman Madison Tuttle. “We had no power for like 30 hours,” said Tuttle. This situation prevented her from finishing her online school work, and contacting friends and teachers for help with assignments. Another issue was that some students don’t own a computer, school being one of the only resources for some students to complete their work online.
