Even in the midst of the pure joy that kids call `a snow day,’ lurks the reality that the cancelled classes will one day come at a cost.
Although freeways and major thoroughfares remained for the most part free of ice, a handful of North Texas school districts cancelled classes Friday — citing icy conditions on side streets, sidewalks and parking lots.
Several of North Texas’ largest school districts and college campuses have decided to cancel classes Friday.
Not only is today the last days of class for students at nine schools in the Dallas Independent School District, but it’s also the last day the campuses will exist. DISD is shutting the doors of the schools for good.
First it was open — then it was closed. On Thursday, students at Southern Methodist University (SMU) got another day off from school, after a late decision by the university.
If school districts across North Texas cancel any more classes most of the schools will be forced to add extra days to the calendar.
