Busses get cancelled in inclement weather though, and that usually means those that do go to school get do do crafts and other fun stuff since the day is usually a write-off. I lived in walking distance of my elementary school, I loved going to school on snow days.
Within the last 2 years, schools have started closing here. But yah, (when I was a kid. Etc and so forth ) I never got time off school, save for the ice storm of '98. It was too cold out? We just didn't go outside for recess. Whimps nowadays.
