I think she was planning on everyone keeping their kids home, being teachers & all. They still have to pay for that day, although the dc isn't officially closed. Plans were made, anticipated zero attendance, but one of the teacher;s kids is coming anyway.
Now she will have to a) officially close for the day - maybe w/o pay, or b) reschedule her plans.
There are only a few perks to having teachers kids. I, too, would have done something similar & hoping for freak day off w/ pay. That, like, only happens once every couple years, and usually when everyone is sick so you don't even enjoy it. LOL.
In this case, I would just haul dck around with me & my not change plans. All my dcparents know that if I only have one or two, that we will go out & about spontaneously.
Oh I see totally blew right past me lol. That is really hard to do.
Well ... how about hanging a sign on your door Monday morning (actually hang it Sunday sometime during the day and sleep in), "Closed, will re-open Tuesday at 7."

What Linda said.
I have a couple of extra car seats, the ever-versatile Radian (love it!), and a crappy Graco Sport-something, that goes to 40lbs forward facing, 5-25 rear facing. Assorted boosters, although I don't take school-agers anymore.
I no longer have a vehicle during the day (we are a one car family), but there are times when dh is home from work, and I only have 1 dck....we will go to the library or something fun. Occasionally, I will reschedule an ortho appt for a dd, or something like that to make life a little simpler. Dh often takes the kids to *all* of their appts, since I have the daycare. It has to get tedious for him after a while, although he never says anything. Sometimes we will go to McD's to their awesome playland(3-12yo!).
