It seems some GTA students were disappointed this morning's 10 centimetres of snow wasn't enough to trigger a snow day. A few grumbled about it on Twitter, only to get a snap back from the school board.
In this example, a tweeter who appears to be a student sent a somewhat snarky message pointing out the weather to the Peel District School Board.
The school board was quick to respond.
Don't worry about me. I have a perfect view. Got one on my drive to work and my window blinds are up. Thanks though. https://t.co/9mmFsgOtTK— @PeelSchools
The school board also reminded students that unless they hear otherwise, school is on.
REMINDER: we will only tweet an update if buses/schools are cancelled. Usually by 6:15 a.m. So, I'd start pouring the cereal. #timeforschool— @PeelSchools
The Toronto District School Board also had to remind students that a) this is Canada and b)10 centimetres is not enough to stay home from school.
@melodyxos What? It's -4 in January and in Canada. This is great! Two words from years past - Polar Vortex.— @tdsb
The student responded, and the TDSB snapped back:
@melodyxos Buried in snow up to their ankles, maybe.— @tdsb
The student, perhaps sensing she was not going to win this one, answered with praise.
@tdsb whoever runs this account, u are savage so good job— @melodyxos
@melodyxos Thanks fam. ✌— @tdsb
Another student decided to try...
And also got rebuked.
@A_Khenjari Try wearing snow boots. Quadratic equations are worth it.— @tdsb
There were other Twitter exchanges between accounts that appear to be those of students and the school board.
Some had praise for how the TDSB handled things.
And with that the social media lesson was complete.
