HHHS is open on Friday?

We just got an automated phone call from Hatboro Horsham School District. Hatboro Horsham High School will be open on Friday, even though the high school is being used as a place for people to stay, that don't have power. The district recording stated the high school will have people staying there, for emergency shelter. Also there will be barricades up to divide off the kids and the emergency shelter. I applaud the district for helping the community. I do, however, have an issue about my kids being in school with complete strangers roaming the building. This is completely ridiculous to me! Just give the kids another day off and let the high school continue to do good for our community. Don't put our childrens safety at risk!

Good point Nicole. All my kids' schools have a/c, so that never occurred to me. And don't get me wrong, I think it is great that the district is helping those in need.

Other school districts are making it very clear when the make-up days are going to be. For example, some are taking away President's Day. Why is our district keeping it a secret. Why no information? It is really pathetic to be so in the dark.

Is it true they closed the HHHS shelter even though there are still so many outages in Montco/ Bucks areas???? I was talking to a woman who had no where to go and said the shelter closed so she is going home to a freezing cold house w/ no water and no power.

They can go to school in June. They would just shorten the school days on the days it is too hot.

I understand they can go to school when it's hot, but what's the point? They won't be learning anything by having a week or so of half days. Once Memorial Day weekend happens, I think most students and teachers start checking out. That's not said to put down anyone, just my two cents.
