Friday, January 22nd. The question everybody is thinking about: Are we going to have a snow day on Monday? And should we have one?
There are lot of things that a snow day brings whether it is good or bad. Here is a list of pros and cons a snow day can bring students at SLA:
- Catch up on work or other personal errands
- Block looks nice
- Play snow football
- Spend a warm day indoors
- Off track of school scheduling
- Days are taken away from season breaks
- The need to shovel up snow
- Icy pavements and streets
We ended up having not one but two snow days after the blizzard that hit on January 23rd. The snow days were reasonable due to the fact that the snow fell over 2 feet. Cars were buried in the snow and people could not get out of their house without falling into the snow. There is still snow out there and although some has melted due to the sun, the cold turned the water into ice. Snow days that have been given to us in the past have been on days where the snow has cleared up quickly or it doesn’t even snow. Snow days are wonderful to enjoy, but only if they are there on an actual snow day. If they are given to us on a clear and sunny day outside, then why give us the snow day.
