I would love the infrastructure to do this. I did tell my students that I'm available via email if they have questions about their work, which I told them to bring home over the weekend just in case we had cold days.

I keep wondering why the schools in the cities are closed. Was there a snowstorm I didn't hear about? There are no rural bus routes. Visibility is never a problem. And it sure doesn't get as cold as up north. I'm 150 miles north. It was -25 this morning with a little breeze and we're not even late.

OKAY so the next question becomes why will we need bricks & mortar schools at all in the future? And teacher unions better be prepared for the further question of why will we need so many teachers when theoretically one teacher could teach tens of thousands of students with on-line courses? And have on-line tutorials and on-line one on one sessions where and when necessary. Just thinking out loud.
