Are School Snow Days A Thing Of The Past?

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The COVID-19 pandemic has already changed schools dramatically. In the age of remote learning, there may also be no more need for snow days, and according to Framingham Schools Superintendent Dr. Bob Tremblay that may not be a bad thing.

"I used to despise snow days as a kid, because it meant I had to go out and shovel my driveway, and my grandmother's driveway, and my neighbor's driveway," he said. "Up until COVID-19, calling a snow day was one of the worst jobs a Superintendent had to endure in the year."

While many kids love staying home to enjoy some backyard sledding, Dr. Tremblay said students will appreciate the lack of snow days when June rolls around.

"This could be a great win, where the end of the school year... gets to still be the last day, and families can plan their vacation and family time accordingly."

Dr. Tremblay said this winter is the perfect opportunity to try a school year without a snow day. It if passes the test, snow days may be gone for good in cities and towns across the Commonwealth.
