So far this 2018-2019 winter season, WHS hasn't had a snow day and it brings the question, does our senior class even want a snow day knowing it would push back the date of graduation?
With a few more cold months approaching, it gives us a chance for some snow days. Some students see snow days as exciting because we get a day off from school to relax and stay in. However, other students would rather be in school during the cold weather and enjoy the day off in the warmer months.
Not having a snow day yet this winter season is surprising to most students and faculty since we usually get many days knocked off our summer due to snow days. I used to want snow days and enjoyed the time off in the winter since obviously we don't have any huge breaks like we do in the summer.
As a senior this year and having snow days push back the graduation date, I can say I don't feel the same way about snow days anymore. I asked some more WHS seniors their thoughts on the situation and these were their responses.
Senior Megan Keleher says, “I think I would rather have a snow day now and push back graduation even though I want to graduate because in the winter you want to have more time off.”
Another senior, Maddie Bradbury has a different opinion. She said, “I do not want any snow days because I would rather graduate sooner and have a longer summer.”
Senior Kylie Judson said, “I would rather get out of school earlier and not have any snow days.”
Senior Maddy Johnson said, “I would not want a snow day at this point because I want to have a longer summer with my friends before we all leave for college next year.”
Finally, senior Valentino Fazio said, “I personally don't want any snow days because all it’s going to do is push back graduation. Yes, maybe a day off here and there is nice, but I'd rather get out of school sooner.”
After asking five seniors, four of them said they would rather have no snow days and graduate on June 13, which would be pretty early for us. Hopefully the snow will continue to hold off!
