Potential snowfall, Jan. 6, 2017

— As snow moves closer to the Triangle, Wake County public schools students took to Twitter to ask the school system to let them leave early Friday.

Durham Public Schools, Orange County Schools and Chapel-Hill Carrboro Schools have already announced that they will dismiss students two hours early.

Some very eager students are hoping Wake schools will do the same. WRAL News compiled some of their tweets:

    Students need to be in school. While there, they shouldn't be posting anything on any social media site such as Twitter.

    What a bunch of whining brats ... years ago we went to school thru most any kind of winter weather, except blizzards, and then we were snowed in for days or weeks, kids today could never survive storms of the olden days, so shut up, school it til release time.

    They are children without fully developed brains, of course they want to go home. This is not news. What percentage are on Twitter, comprised of the total population of students in Wake, Durham and Orange counties. A few whiny children are what our teachers have to deal with each day.

    To answer Neicyboo - Are you going home yes or no?? NO!!!
    To Milford - Why are we still in school right now? (Question mark added since you haven't passed English yet) You are still in school because it is a school day and it isn't snowing.
    To Visionary - ".. why do y'all do this to us" Because we are grumpy old people who hope and want you to go to school and learn something and grow up to amount to something other than a whiner.

    Maybe some of you should stop and smell the roses once in a while instead of instead of SEARCHING for a reason to throw stones.
