    In Los Angeles, we never had snow days. But did play games and such if it rained. The Seven Up game is the only one I remember.

    We had a mid-winter break when I was a kid in the 1970s. It was called Christmas vacation. We also had a spring break called Easter vacation.

    And way back in the 50’s and 60’s we not only had both of those, but there was no bad mouthing and protests about what those breaks were called. The only hassles were that all the local districts didn’t use the same schedules for the breaks. Just like summer vacation was shifted by a week or two amoung the districts.

    Only time I can think of that Oregon Tech closed was the year before I went there. There was 2+ feet of snow, black ice on the highway to where 97 was closed. They still were going to have classes, though. The kids in the dorm rolled enormous snowballs in front of the doors of the admin building. Closed school…
    As far as I know, the year after I graduated, they didn’t close when 96 inches of snow was dumped in the first three weeks of January.

    I don’t think we ever had our schools closed because of snow here in Edmonton.

    Growing up in Connecticut we had a Winter break, usually around the first or second week of March, and a Spring break, usually around the first or second week of May.

    When I was in elementery school over a half century ago in NC, we didn’t have many snow days. However we did have recess and a class in cursive, which appears now to be things of the past. Excuse me now, while I take my pills and meditate on the relevancy of this comment.

    That was one of the benefits of going to a Benedictine Catholic school: We could pray to St. Scholastica. Yes, there really is a patron saint of snow days, and no, I’m not making that up.

    Well, almost by definition you can’t travel anywhere on a snow day.

    One cartoon I remember from “those days” was of a school boy peering out of the window of a Latin Grammar School and seeing a bus stuck in the snow: “Sick Transit, Glorious Monday”

    My father was Superintendent of Schools in our small NC town and as soon as the first snowflake fell, he would get phone calls as to whether school would be cancelled. But to be honest, it was a real concern; most snow fell at around 32 degrees (F) and produced ICE. Northerners use to complain the we Southerners didn’t know how to drive in snow – but nobody can drive in ice! People prove that every winter.

    In Rochester NY if the plows could get through the roads, we had school.

    Very true! When I was in high school, I totally lucked out with 2 snow days when we were supposed to have mid-terms. (Of course, I didn’t study much during those days, but it was still awesome!)

    I think teachers enjoy snow days more than the students….They get paid for the fist 5 of ‘em….What’s not to like about that? Roll over and snooze with a smile on your face…Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow….Nothing sweeter than a snow day….
