When 90 kids were stranded overnight by the snow, E. Rivers Elementary School principal Matt Rogers made it a fun “snowcation” — showing movies, serving pizza, drying tears and tucking them in using their own coats as blankets.
“It was just something you sign up for when you become a teacher,” said one teacher, who slept for about 90 minutes Tuesday night on her classroom floor. “You’ll take care of your children whenever necessary.”
