During the week of January 28th through February 1st. Clare Public Schools has was subject to a whole week of snow days due to a lot of snow and sub-zero temperatures. The school does not do this often. In fact, last time the school got a full week off due to the weather was in January 2017. Needless to say, most students were thrilled, as well as a few teachers.

Many students wish they were back in the classroom learning, rather than at home.

During the storm, most students spent their time staying inside to keep warm. If anyone was out for too long, they were subject to frostbite. Students were likely to be inside playing games, making hot coffee, or maybe setting up a party for Super Bowl LIII

To quote student, Lindsey Brown, “I got to hang out with friends, caught up on school work, and cleaned up the house for my hardworking parents.”

Benjamin Yob added “I didn’t do much, mostly relaxed with no school to worry about.”

For those who are worried about another storm like the one over the week, here are some tips to help get through it. First, make sure to listen to the news for road closures.  Second, have some bottled water ready in case the power goes out and you need to stay hydrated. Third, have your vehicle running every now and then to keep it from dying on you. Lastly, only shovel when necessary and only shovel for a few minutes at a time should it be sub-zero outside.

Hopefully, the students will be able to get back on track when heading back to school and be able to learn lots after their week of snow days. It’s important for the students to get to the school as safely as possibly. It is also important that the students will be able to make the most of their education once they return. Let’s all return to a normal schedule and continue with everyday life.
