Flipping the script on school closings, one private school in Washington state decided it would be a fun change of pace to announce that classes were canceled due to good weather for once.
But rather than spring the announcement on students and staff, Principal Bob Sampson says he made sure to tease the "Sun Day" in advance to get kids excited.
"Kids just love the anticipation of sitting around to see if school is canceled when it snows," he told the Associated Press. "You know, we haven’t had any snow days, so I thought ‘how fun would it be to create that anticipation for kids when it’s nice out?’"
He called the parents of all 205 students to make sure Friday worked for them, and let the school board and teachers know his plans as well.
