Snow Days????

It seems that this year, in particular, snow days have been causing a problem in some districts, causing them to rethink what we should all be doing when stuck at home. Some schools are thinking of implementing virtual schools so that students and teachers can do work from home during inclement weather.

What do you think about this?
