No School

This is the last week of school for Olivia. Today, tomorrow, and Wednesday were to be exam days and the last day of school is Thursday. School today had to be canceled due to flood waters from our weekend storms.

Entrance to school parking lot.

The parking lot!

The parking lot of the school was completely under water and not just a little water. It was up to the tops of the very few vehicles that were in the lot. There is some damage inside the school as well.

There are more photos of the flooding near us posted in my flickr account.

When you were growing up, did you ever have school called off for flooding/rain?

Will they have to make the time up?

No we didn't, but I am sure we would have if it had ever been like this. The water in the lot was at five feet at one point and running into the school. Most streets around the schools were covered with fast running flood waters. I think our school district made the absolute right call.

They will not have to make up the day.
