Snowy weather has started in parts of United States and Europe and is forecast for parts of world for the next month as well.
For students, it means there is possibility of reaping advantages from the ancient ritual of the “snow day”, when schools are enforced by authorities to close and students get an unanticipated day off.
It’s a familiar theme from the American culture, with children receiving the fine news and then running outside for some snowman-building and snowball throwing with music playing in the background.
But sadly the ritual is now over for pupils in places such as South Carolina, Nevada, Georgia and Indiana. This educational year, many school boards have initiated policies which want students to study from home if the school is close by extreme weather. These days will be known as “e-learning days”, which sound less fun than a snow day.
