Schools have one level above Mr. Steve and God

At the Adair County School Board Meeting, 16 Apr 2015

Superintendent Alan Reed read a story from Adair County Elementary School which occurred on Tuesday, April 14, 2017, as flood waters were rising across roads, resulting, later, in schools being dismissed at 11:30amCT:
As it is raining again pretty hard outside, Kelsi W. just asked me if we are going to cancel school today.

I said, "I don't know Kels, but I hope we get to stay all day. Do you know who makes that decision?"

She grinned, "Mr. Steve does."

I replied, "No, someone above him". Her eyes lit up, "God".

I laughed and shared that God does make the rain but Mr. Reed, Mrs. Reed's husband and our superintendent, makes that call!

Have a great, rainy day!
Thanks to Sandy Wilson, Assistant (to "Mr. Steve," Steve Burton) Principal at Adair County Elementary School for the story.
