"I Miss Summer" by Flickr user Fensterbme.

The convergence of an excessive accumulation of snow, high winds, low temperatures and treacherous driving conditions prompted Columbus City Schools to cancel classes and all extracurricular activities on Friday, Jan. 8.

Throughout central Ohio, thousands of CEA members woke up to the silent beauty of freshly fallen snow and the realization of an unexpected day out of the classroom.

Friday marked the district’s first use of a snow day for the 2009-2010 school year. For hundreds of first-year teachers in CCS it was their first snow day ever.

How did you spend your first snow day of the 2009-2010 school year?

  1. Snowed in but prepared! says:

    Honestly? Shoveling snow, grading papers and making phone calls to my students’ families about their progress in my class. The quarter ends in a week, but there’s still time for my students to bring their grade up!

    I hope everyone stays safe and warm! See everyone on Monday!

    To be honest, I am spending the snowday like most students. I went back to sleep for a couple of hours and plan on watching movies on my couch. Maybe if I’m feeling adventurous, I’ll go get some Chinese food :) Happy 3 day weekend, everyone!

    I like my most of students went back to bed. I am enjoying spending my day playing with my three girls (16, 13, and 10) and my husband. We made pancakes and sausage and are having fun hanging out snuggling around a warm fire. We are going to play games and have fun.

    I went back to bed and then got up and have leisurely spent my day doing things I might do on the weekend, laundry, cleaning, cooking lunch, etc. Life is more relaxed when you have three days to spread out the work that is usually done in two days! Happy Three Day Weekend!
