Stratford, CT: Move Winter Break to This Week

I would like to ask the Stratford Board of Education to be proactive and move winter break to this week or shorten next week's break. The kids have already missed so much school this year after all the weather-related events of the past year. It is a safe bet given the impact of this storm that the school buildings will have some serious impact, since each hurricane in the past 2 years closed schools in Stratford for a week solid. Meanwhile, winter break is scheduled for next week, which would in effect give students a solid two weeks out of school--a waste of educational time and a huge impact of lost time for working families, many of whom are not being paid for this time off. Make the announcement early rather than day by day so people can make plans.
