Minn. School Says Goodbye To Snow Days, Hello To 'Virtual' Days

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) --St. Cloud Cathedral High School is getting a lot of attention this morning, because, despite the heavy snow that fell earlier this week, students still had to go to class.

Instead of a snow day, they held a "virtual class day."

Students were required to log into their laptops or iPads and work from home. Everything went so smoothly that the principal announced the school will no longer have snow days.

Students didn't like it at first, but most have changed their minds, saying they'd prefer to skip out on a day of sledding rather than make-up days in the summer.

Minnesota's Department of Education has been mulling over how to effectively bring virtual classes to all public schools.
