The appearance or threat of snow, ice or severe storms often
leads to classes being canceled in the Peach State. But sunshine? Not so much.
Yet one Georgia school did just that. Officials at Calvary Christian School in Columbus called off today’s classes for both students and teachers because of the excellent weather forecast.
“It is too nice a day to have school!” a message on the front page of Calvary Christian’s
website said, adding that the call to give folks the day off was made by
Headmaster Len McWilliams.
“In the late 1980’s, I was calling school off one winter day because of the terrible weather,” McWilliams said in the message on the website. “The thought occurred to me that it would be great to call school off some day because it was too beautiful a day to go to school. I decided that some day before retiring I would do it.”
