School District Wins the Internet With Heartfelt Snow Day Announcement

With the COVID-19 pandemic making virtual learning the new normal, many have feared that the beloved childhood tradition of snow days might be a thing of the past.

But in Jefferson County, West Virginia, snow day anticipation is here to stay.

Ahead of a snowstorm threatening the county back in December, Jefferson County superintend Dr. Bondy Shay Gibson issued a heartfelt letter with thoughtful reasoning for cancelling online classes for a snow day.

“For generations, families have greeted the first snow day of the year with joy,” she wrote. “A reminder of how fleeting a childhood can be. An opportunity to make some memories with your family that you hold onto for life.”
