You can see the snow on the ground, the middle school students waiting in the parking lot, and even a teacher or two has come to cheer on their student.
It’s a huge day at my academic school. High schools are tested to get into; today, 237 students tested for 120 slots. But we’ll have another test for 120 more slots, totaling 240. The second test is for the students who did / didn’t get into their first school of choice, so they’re trying out for a higher / lower one. It depends on the kid.
Also, teachers are not allowed to leave the school for the day…but we do get boxed lunches. 🙂
