Thanks to Erin Krex, First Class Care for this information on Nannies & Snow Days.
Last year we had a horrible winter. Cities across the country, including those that rarely see any kind of winter weather, got slammed with snow, ice, and dangerously cold temperatures. Who knows what this year will bring weather-wise. But whatever that is, it’s essential that you have a clear snow day policy in place before it’s needed.
No Snow Days Allowed
Some nanny employers have to work regardless of the weather. This group usually includes first responders (e.g. fire fighters, police officers) and medical personnel (e.g. emergency room doctors, nurses). In these cases, there’s not an option for the nanny to stay home due to bad weather. She has to make it to work to ensure her employer can make it to work. This usually means the nanny stays over the night before the storm hits.
