In a year where everything has changed, a West Virginia superintendent decided to uphold one important tradition the first snow day. The educator's heartfelt letter announcing the district's schools, which are currently only open for remote learning, would be having a snow day on Wednesday has gone viral. "For generations, families have greeted the first snow day of the year with joy," superintendent of Jefferson County Schools, Bondy Shay Gibson, Ed.D, wrote. "It is a time of renewed wonder at all the beautiful things that each season holds. A reminder of how fleeting a childhood can be. An opportunity to make some memories with your family that you hold on to for life." Gibson said the entire district would be closed Wednesday for all students and staff, even virtually. The snow day call was made in anticipation of the monster winter storm that brought deadly conditions to the Northeast.
