Schools close due to winter storm

More than 130 schools are closed today due to the wintry weather besieging Kansas.

One of those schools is Western Plains Unified School District 106, which is where I am employed as a paraeducator.

Having a day off, though it results in no pay since I am hourly, is great. I got to sleep in and got nearly 11 hours of sleep.


A few other schools I like to keep my eye on are also closed. They are as follows: Canton-Galva, Lindsborg, Ness City, Clay Center, Ellsworth, Centre, Marion, Hillsboro, Goessel, McPherson, Greensburg, Mullinville, Little River, Hays and Haviland.
