RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

I HATE MY SCHOOL DISTRICT! We got more flippin snow than any of those other schools, yet we are the only district that still has school today! Other schools in the same city got out today! Why not us? We haven't had one snow day yet this year, so why can't we get one when everyone else does!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? IT'S NOT FAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My school did the opposite; gave us a bunch of days off when we didn't even need them. It was awesome then, but now we have to make up all the days. They had to cut off our April vacation which was supposed to be next week, and delay the end of the school year. Sad

RE: WE WERE SUPPOSED TO GET A SNOW DAY TODAY!

We once didnt have a snow day when we should have had one. The entire state had a snow day except us. It only took around half the school day for the admin to realize half the students were absent from being unable to arrive. They decided that maybe a snow day wouldve been a smart idea but since it took them so long to smarten up, theyd just continue with the regular schedule.

RE: WE WERE SUPPOSED TO GET A SNOW DAY TODAY!

My school doesn't give us snow days when we need them and then we get in trouble for playing in the snow. Logic, right?

My dad is a teacher at a different school district. He teaches at the high school closest to where I live, but I go to school 30 minutes away. Last night, we got A LOT of rain/snow mix, along with insane winds and cold temperatures. The forecast predicted around a foot of snow in the district where I go to school. A good handful of districts closed just last night due to the forecast. I went to bed really excited last night because I was almost certain that today would be a snow day.

I was wrong. I was woken up by the wind at about 4:30 this morning. I got up, went to the bathroom, and then looked out the window to see how much snow we got. On the ground, I could still see the flippin grass! I was so pissed off! All of those other schools are too hasty! They just cancel school whenever there is a millimeter of snow on the ground!

I went back to bed and laid there for a while, feeling pretty bad for myself and everyone else who went to my school. Suddenly, I heard my dad wake up. He always wakes up early on school days, so I knew that at least he had to go to school. I then heard him and my mom turn on the tv and start watching the news (which, of course, was about the snowstorm). I heard them talking about school cancelations. Contrary to what my dad does every school morning, he simply turned the tv off and went back to bed. I could not believe it! It was then that I heard him go downstairs about an hour later (which was too late for him to get ready for school). Immediatally, I found the school closures page on the news website. It was filled with tons of closures. I flipped through until I got to the first letter in my school's name. I looked down, but it was nowhere to be seen. I raged! Why did they have to rear-end us again in the cruelest was possible!?!?!?

We don't get snow where I live, but I remember one time we got a note that Tuesday was going to be a day of because there was going to be extreme wind gusts and terrible weather. It turned out to be an absolutely perfect day, probably the best one all month. Best. Thing. Ever!

But a few weeks ago the wind was peaking at 110km/hr and we didn't get a break or anything and I was so confused! Haha

Once it was snowing heavily where I live and my school was open. At lunchtime the intercom went off and everybody thought it said to leave the premises. It actually said to come inside the main school building. Needless to say, there was chaos.

RE: WE WERE SUPPOSED TO GET A SNOW DAY TODAY!

Thankfully, my school district is run by pussies who usually cancel at the slightest flurry. Sometimes there'll be an absolute clusterfuck however, because it'll be snowing right as school is starting and then they don't delay or close school until after everybody has arrived. At this point we're stuck there until a parent picks you up, or if you're like me and happen to have your license and a car you can just drive home. They don't bother to bus everyone home off-schedule, and we already traveled to school in the worst of it!

Who am I? Who are YOU?

If schools were a business, Theyd go bankrupt due to horrifically stupid business decisions. Unfortunately those attending are considered a third party stuck a deal between admins and parents as if we're property.

It takes a blizzard to close down my school. The headteacher is stupid she puts everyone's *learning* if that is what you call it before their safety is ridiculous! scores of people slip over down a steep hill we have to walk down to get inside the school grounds.

Yeah I'm with 5. A couple of snowflakes and -bam- we're outta school.

Plus, somehow, we managed to get approved a proposal to get out of school 2 days earlier because we didn't have any snow days this year.

...unless you count the time we got out because some killer maniac was on the loose.

Hmm, maybe I have a bit more respect for those guys. They can shut down an entire county.
