I only had one snow day during my time in school. I was in Kindergarten. I remember my mom driving my brother and me to school and our principal standing outside in the snowstorm waving to tell everyone to go home. (This was obviously a few years before the internet or smartphones.)
The biggest reason I remember the snow day is because I had to go in on a Saturday morning to make up that day of school.
A few years ago, my nephews’ school had a TON of snow days. They had so many snowstorms that winter that they didn’t have enough days planned to make it up so they instead had to adjust the school schedule to make short days full days of school to make up the time.
To avoid these situations of makeup days or adjusted school schedules, many schools and school districts are moving away from having snow days as days off to remote learning days as shown in a quick Google search:
- No escape as ‘snow day’ becomes ‘e-learning day’
- No More Snow Days, Thanks to Remote Learning? Not Everyone Agrees
- COVID-19 ends snow days? Schools use online class to cancel them
- New York City just canceled snow days, and parents aren’t happy
- What’s a school ‘digital day?’ What happened to WCSD snow days?
- Should There Still Be Snow Days?
- New York City public schools cancel snow days, citing the success of remote learning
- Snow days turn into ‘digital days’ at some Minnesota schools
One thing is certain, winter brings unexpected weather. In many places snow days are inevitable and so are the disruptions they bring to everyone’s plans. And as many places are moving to remote learning days that may mean a quick change from in-person lessons to online.
I’m positive nobody wants to scramble the morning of a snow day to quickly re-write lesson plans or try to figure out how to adapt them to distance learning.
