As some of you may know, Wynter attends an online charter school that is home based. Today is the official end of the quarter. Actually, 11:59 pm tonight. For some stupid reason, they decided to bring the site down for maintenance last night/this morning. The message said it would be down from midnight til 9am. It's still not up. I know that Wynter is not the only playing catch up. When the remnants of Ike came through, many families were without power for a week or more. The site was down for 3 days a couple of weeks ago. The kids aren't given extra time to make up the work. It still has to be done by the end of the quarter. You know, when traditional school is out for inclement weather, they don't have to go and attend for double the hours for however many days they were out. What on earth were they thinking bringing the site down at the end of the quarter? On top of that, teachers haven't been able to access the turned in assignments and haven't been able to post the assignments for the start of the new quarter on Monday. They better allow extra time. That is what they have done in the past when there were technical issues or widespread power outages. I don't what is going on with them this year. ARGH!!!!!
