This week, it is taking me less time to get to work than usual — and I have to admit, it’s pretty wonderful. I live in a suburb of Washington, D.C. and generally spend about 30 minutes on the road before getting to the closest Metro stop.
Today, that commute was cut in half.
It’s spring break, you see, which means parents aren’t trying to get their kids to school during rush hour and school buses aren’t winding their way through my neighborhood. So, the streets are a bit lonelier as elementary, middle and high school kids enjoy some time off.
As I drove to work, though, I got to thinking about the parents out there who have to adapt to this temporary, no-school schedule.
With all the technology out there and more and more offices adopting telecommuting policies, is time off from school now the time for telework? I am not a parent myself, but I would love to hear from parents and their office mates!
Are you a parent who teleworks during spring break? Summer vacation? Do any of your co-workers take advantage of teleworking policies when their kids are off from school?
