As we were eating dinner, about half an hour ago, the 7-year-old who lives in my house asked me to check Dallas Independent School District's Facebook page to see if there'd been an announcement about school tomorrow. So I did. I read this aloud:
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, Dallas ISD schools and administrative offices will be open on Thursday, February 10. Please be safe on the way in to school tomorrow!
At which point the 7-year-old who lives in my house said, "I think you read all of that wrong." He's presently reading over my shoulder and feels the need to add this: "I really don't think I should have asked you to look it up." But you did, buddy. Now go read, brush your teeth and get to bed.
