Wake Year-Round Students Make Up Snow Day

Posted February 3, 2007 5:45 p.m. EST

The sun was out on Saturday, but winter weather put a damper the day for plenty of Wake County students.

Snow flurries and slick roads led school officials to call off classes on Thursday. Students on Wake County's year-round calendar made up the day on Saturday.

School officials said attendance was slightly less than a typical school day. Some parents told WRAL that school on Saturday wasn't as bad as it sounds.

“They didn't have any plans today, so I don't think they cared,” said parent Karyn Wolf. “If we'd had major plans, it would have been a big deal to cancel our plans.”

Students on the traditional calendar will have their makeup day on Feb. 19.
