MOUNT VERNON — There will be no calamity days at the Knox County Career Center this year. Calamity days have always caused a challenge to school administrators, said KCCC Superintendent Bernie Pachmayer.

    Yes, That’s right. Let’s take away the classic ‘snow days’ that every kid loves. No kid will get on the computer at 8:30am when they know they don’t really have to. So many excuses can come into play (I don’t have internet, My computer was broken, The internet wasn’t working…) Thank God my husband and I graduated when we did. I wouldn’t make my child attend these online classes. Taking away snow days from kids is like taking football away from America… it should be illegal.
