Students Anticipate Surprise Snow Day

March 20, 2014
James F Byrnes Freshman Academy

On Tuesday, January 28, students crowding the halls of Byrnes Freshman Academy discussed the possibility of snow fall and the even greater possibility of leaving school early.

Manuel Hernandez, student at Byrnes Freshman Academy (BFA), said, “I think it’s great” and Kinsley Burke, student of BFA, said, “I love the idea.”

However, missing school because of snow is also, “…bittersweet” as reported by Eric Taus, World Geography teacher at BFA. “It’s exciting, but I won’t be able to cover as much in class.”  On a personal note, Taus also said he expects to “play video games with my daughter.”

Likewise, Bryan Foster, student at BFA, said he planned to do “nothing really, probably play a game.”

Some have had bigger snow plans in the past. “About fifteen years ago there was a real good snow and we were able to find a back road and use our sleds to sled down the back road. It wasn’t busy at all, and the snow was real packed. Yeah, we had a pretty good time,” recalled Bryan Fowler, physical science teacher at BFA.

Many students and teachers have been checking their phones for the weather updates and reports.   Perhaps the students of Byrnes Freshman Academy will be graced with a day off from tests, quizzes and assignments.

Presently there is an 80% chance of snow, according to the Weather Channel about 10 a.m. that day.

There have been unusually cold temperatures recently, including Wednesday, January 29, with a high of 32 degrees, and a high Thursday, January 30, with a bone-chilling temperature of 21 degrees.  A record low was set Tuesday, January 7, of 6 degrees.
