    I was not able to complete the survey because I have experienced both closure due to illness and closure due to a number of other reasons, including flooding, ice, bomb threats, and water main breaks at school. So I was unable to accurately answer number 5.

    I'm not in the U.S., so didn't complete the survey, but I did take a look. I'm curious as to why you have included the question about gender?

    We experience closure due to weather most frequently, but have closed once a year for the flu. Also, I teach both middle and high school science, so I wish I could have checked both boxes.

    In all my years as a student and now as a teacher, we've only ever closed for weather, never for an illness

    My answer to #5 had more than one choice. We have missed due to flooding, snow, water main breaks, bomb threats, no electricity, extreme cold, extreme heat, basketball tournaments, flu outbreaks, whooping cough outbreaks, and teacher protests.

    For those teachers who have had their schools closed due to illness, I have never experienced this or were informed about this. This seems to actually happen, based on what I am reading. Would someone be able to explain this further to me?
