Do Women in Sudbury Work??

So with all the snow days, I don’t understand how kids stay home and not go to school. I used to live in southern Ontario and 80% of kids still went to school on snow days and that was because parents have to work. Here, I notice the complete opposite. Are there really that many unemployed people that are just at home anyways, so there kids can stay home? My daughter said her teacher told the class yesterday to enjoy their snow day at home. Teacher, your job isn’t to tell the kids to stay home and it has my daughter questioning how you feel about your class. Not only do all the unemployed people tend to breed more unemployed kids, but we are also teaching our kids that when there is snow, ice, a storm, whatever, we shouldn’t be expected to do anything. And that my friends, is not the real world. Most employers would laugh at someone or fire them for not coming to work on a day like today. And you are welcome, unemployed people….you get to spend the day with your kids today while I go to work so I can pay for you to stay home and show your kids the example that they don’t have to show responsibility and work.

  1. First of all
    If you lived in southern Ontario your “snow days” are 2 inches of snow …. were in northern Ontario and in case you haven’t noticed we have 10 feet of snow!!! Schools are still open but it’s the buses that are canceled for safety of “YOUR” child you can easily drive them and pick them up …

  3. Wow, I feel a lot of bitterness and judgment from this post. I can certainly see where you are coming from, but I would argue that childcare is a job, and a very unappreciated one. I’m not a parent myself, I’m a full-time student on placement (which is like a job but one you don’t get paid for) 😛 But honestly, I’d have a -much- harder time raising a child than working full-time. To answer your original question, women absolutely work! The non-profit organization I am on placement at is staffed by both men and women who are hardworking and wonderful people, and the executive director is female.

  4. Leslie Buffett sorry. But no. Schools are not closed when buses are. Teachers are all still at school. Ours still goes. You need yourself some education.

    Our schools are open when buses are cancelled, parents are free to drive their kids to school is possible. I drive my son and he hasn’t missed any school, I’m in school too and I certainly don’t get snow days lol

  12. listen to the radio everytime they announce snow days… “schools remain open but transportation cancelled” every snow day we’ve had this year has been busses cancelled but schools still open. Teachers are still expected to show up and if you drop your kids off you’re responsible to pick them up.

    [0]
  13. Leslie Buffett omg it’s the law they gotta be open for the exact reason I think that ppl have schedules please tell me your trolling and your not this stupid

  14. If buses are canceled it’s up the parent to decide if the roads are safe enough for travel

    [0]
  15. Kids 11+ can stay home alone on a snow day, or go to a friends/grandparents house if parents are working. In my experience, it’s not delivering kids to school on ‘Snowy Day’ that was the problem, but collecting them afterwards as I do work past 3pm. I had to find other arrangements. Some kids within walking distance can not walk on ice rink type sidewalks to even get there (like last Friday)…… so many variables you have not considered here. I think the teacher is wishing all his/her students a safe day, wherever that is. The less kids on the roads in bad weather the better, walking or driving.

  18. Some woman have young kids at home. Too young for school and too young for daycare. They are called stay at home moms. And if ANYONE tells me that’s not a job. I suggest you come to my place and try it for a week.

  24. Teacher says enjoy your snow day tomorrow then they are telling your kid to have a good day.. as most kids don’t go to school on snow days, this is just being polite.. people are reading to much into it.. And what if the parent staying at home with the kid is unemployed but their spouse isn’t.. they’re just a stay at home parent.. good for them.. everyone has to quit being so judgemental

    [0]
    • This! Teachers can’t say anything anymore without some parent getting mad and taking it the wrong way. It’s the what, 15th snow day of the year, that teacher knows how many kids won’t be there the next day and it’s probably most of them.

  25. Eric Caron Eric Caron says:

    If school buses are cancelled schools are open but if municipal transportation is cancelled then the schools close

  26. Schools in Sudbury never close for weather, it’s always that the buses are cancelled and therefore attendance is optional. Just because the definition of a “snow day” says schools are closed doesn’t mean that’s how the practice is done in Sudbury.

  27. I was just saying the same thing to my spouse,. What’s with all these mom’s going on about spending every snow day at home with the kids lol Dont they work?

  39. Scott Seguin Scott Seguin says:

    what’s the difference of the kids are taught not to go to school on a snow day or that when you go to school on a snow day you get to play board games all day… cuz they don’t teach new curriculum on a snow day… I own my own business so therefore I set my own hours so on snow days since I work from home anyways she stays home… Missing school on a snow day doesn’t even count towards a child attendance… Also some employers care more about their employees safety then anything else so they give them the day off when the weather is really bad or they got sick days they can use… I know two people who use sick days yesterday.

  43. Workong mom’s mom probably do what I do and drop them off at school as the schools themselves are still open!

    [0]
  44. First of all, why do you assume the mother would be the one to stay home? Second of all, many times there is a parent who works nights or afternoons and can be home with the child. Some people also have retired parents who help out with their children and can spend the day with them on snow days.

    [0]
  45. “Unemployed people tend to breed more unemployed kids” this whole post is just wrong.

  46. You dont pay for me to stay home!, my husband does but thanks .. some people have to stay home.. you know how expensive daycare is?? Id be working to pay for it only having 2 kids and not being eligible for subsidy. Why pay out my whole work cheque to someone to raise my children when I can ? And again YOU dont support us in the least my husband does!

  49. Fathers and mothers should have plans in place. Some single parents don’t have much of a choice. I have seen parents bring the child to work until help can pick them up. There are options. And most parents do have the plan in place.

    [0]
  50. My kids stay home because I do work – I can’t leave work to go and pick them up when school ends, so they have to stay home all day (without me).

    [0]
  51. When the kids get a snow day I get a snow day! Some working parents do have flexibility. Guess it helps if your a private contractor. But none the less I’m sure some parents get babysitters or grandparents or may have an older child that can stay home with the others if any.

  53. I’m single and do not work, because I DO NOT HAVE TO!, and have three kids.
    Snow days we spend them outside or doing crafts if it’s to cold.
    I’ve worked three jobs since I was 16, if there are no busses my kids stay home with me to spend time with them

The men dont work to support their woman anymore..women work to support their man as well… If it makes you feel better then by all means send your children to school and if that’s what makes you feel good about yourself then good for you. I choose to keep my children home and if it bothers you then that’s youre problem!

    A lot of people work from home. I myself run my own business so if there is a snow day and I choose not to drive her she stays home.

    I know many employers are Lenient and parents use up sick days ect

  65. I’m sorry that you still have to work but not sorry that I am a stay at home mom. I would love to be working and my kids would have still have gone to school and daycare. but unfortunately daycare spaces are far and few between. oh and you don’t pay for me to stay home, you assumption and ignorance is astonishing to me. just because some moms stay home doesn’t mean they are on welfare or don’t work, but some employers are actually understanding. oh and your comment of growing up in southern Ontario and not getting snow days REALLY, last time I checked I’ve gone to southern Ontario in the winter and don’t even have half as much snow as we get EVERY YEAR!!!

  70. Judgey judgerson straight outta judgesville! I keep my boy home with me, not because I’m unemployed, but because I am currently on maternity leave… my husband is also employed but laid off for the winter. Also, there are employers in Sudbury that care about their employees and would rather them stay home with their kiddos, then drive in unsafe conditions. Also, employed parents that perhaps don’t drive, and have no other choice but to stay home. So take off your judges robe and think before posting. ✌️

    I am in school and dont work at this moment but I still take my kids to school and daycare on snow days. But sometimes we live busy lifes that it’s nice when you can have that extra day to spend with you child. But some people dont live close enough to be walking threw big snow falls . Sometimes the 4 hour jurney us not worth it for the people who take city bus .

    [0]
  79. Welp… I have the option to work from home when the roads are bad…. you know.. so I don’t risk my life to get in to the office…
    Most people with good jobs have personal days they can take to stay home on occasion..
    it’s funny that you assume they are staying home with mothers, when a lot of men are laid off from their construction or labor jobs, during the winter DUE TO WEATHER… lolol

    My kids have to stay at daycare because I have to be at work for 8am and drop them off for 7. So if the bus isn’t running to bring them to school they have to remain at daycare for the day until I get off work and go get them.

My husband leaves for work before the kids get up. I don’t drive so can’t drop them off/pick them up so they stay home on snow days. Like the saying goes, you do you. I’ll do me lol.

  87. Ash Hervieux Ash Hervieux says:

    Bitter much. Its northern ontario we get more snow then southern ontario. Fyi just because it’s a snow day doesn’t mean the school is closed totally means the buses are only normally so you can still drop your kid off at school then head to work. Alot of people shift work, run their own businesses or have jobs they can take their kid to work with them the rest have family or friends that can watch their kids. 11 years old they can stay at home alone 12 years old they can get their babysitting course. So quit whining suck it up it’s the north or move back south

  88. Lisa Hill Lisa Hill says:

    OP… A bit judgy? You have no idea what each family is going thru. I am older and don’t have kids at home anymore. However, I was a single parent of 2 kids. I held 2 jobs and when snow days hit I lost income. So, on behalf of all the parents out there that actually have kids and work… Keep your judgemental attitude to yourself. You just show the world what an ass you are.

    [0]
  89. Just cause the kids aren’t going to school on snowday doesn’t even mean there at home with mom cause people who are at work can’t leave at 3 just to pick them up or who knows maybe they work from home so they can stay home cause why send the kid to school on a snow day unless the kid acually wants to go but it’s not like they are learning anything because to many kids won’t be there so the teacher won’t be teaching anything with that many kids missing and to me it’s alot easier to drop the kid off at grandmas house cause u don’t need to leave early just to pick up and bring the kid to grandma’s after school anyways then drive back to work and most jobs won’t just let you leave to do that anyways. Who ever wrote this post is ignorant and obviously doesn’t think about all the other possibilities rather then moms not working like wtf does this person even care mind your own business..

    A lot of ppl bring their kids to day care or a sitter on a snow day. Lots of ppl also dont work 9 to 5 min to Friday and may happen to have the day off. Some work from home, some make theornown hours on salary we all walk different roads can ur assumptions and mind ur own.

  102. Wow this is quite a message. When my children were younger, they walked to school even on snow days because they lived close enough. I was a stay at home mom and their father worked to support our family…which was our choice. Snow days are nobody’s choice as we do not have control over mother nature. I know many mom’s and dad’s who miss work because their children are home. No wonder your post is anonymous…I wouldn’t want to attach my name to such a hypocritical statement.

  108. I’d rather take a sick day from work and tend to my kid, then risk driving out in dangerous conditions. If you wanna risk your kids life on those roads so you can go to work, thats up to you, but i’d rather know my children are safe. Just saying.

  115. Mine are old enough to stay home alone so I would rather my kids be safe at home than on the roads in inclement weather. Let them enjoy being kids and having the option to stay home.
    Sudbury has a lot of shift workers so many are home during daylight hours.
    Perhaps you should head back to Southern Ontario so your kids can develop a better work ethic.

  117. Some of us work and some of us stay home. It’s a good thing your post was anonymous because it was mean spirited. Shame on you! Other people ‘s family situations are none of your business. If you have an issue with the teacher take it up with her. Otherwise if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all.

  118. Gregg Hill Gregg Hill says:

    Why do I get the feeling that you feel hard done and put upon because you have to do your job? Your deal is your deal, and everybody else’s deal is their deal. If you hate your life so much then change it, but it is toxic to carry that much resentment for other people. That attitude alone will harm your daughter far worse than anyone else’s “bad work attitude”. As a matter of fact, if she is currently conflicted about her teacher it is almost certainly the result of you ranting and bad-mouthing the teacher, not anything to do with the snow day. Your lack of respect breeds lack of respect – the cycle of nastiness is just as persistent as the cycle of abuse, or the cycle of poverty.

    Its called calling in . Works for snow days as well my friend. Uneducated fucks like you are the reason single moms have such a hard time being judged with every move they make. Fuck right off. And before you get on your high and mighty horse. No I do not have kids. I’m just an understanding human being. You should try it sometime 😉 They pay into their sick days too . Just like everyone else :p and if they are stay at home moms then they dont have to call in. They are already at work. Cause yeah its a job and half. No breaks. Unless you lock the door to poop in some cases lol also they could be staying home with dad? Or grams or gramps? Or aunty or uncle? Or older brother or sister who also has a snow day? Or maybe because it is a SNOW day they had to call into work anyway cause they couldn’t get through the snow either? We are NORTHERN ontario not southern . We get like 10cm at the least .

  125. Hey fuck nuts….my wife stays home because we can…..its our choice to have my children raised by the parents instead of a daycare….when it’s a snow day my kids enjoy spending time with their mother while dad is away at work….and at no time do I fear raising a generation of kids who arent taught to work….so as politely as possible….maybe think more before you speak
