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.

In our defense, we very rarely close down for tropical storms and/or hurricanes.

We have hurricane days and hardly EVER use them, LOL.

Us Floridians really are wimps
Lol omg Schools here are closed today but, it's -40 out. But they're open tomorrow and the high is -1 without wind chill factored in! Pretty sure they're only closed cuz it's hard to get buses started in this weather.

I'm super pumped for our 30 degree weather we have coming up. Gonna spend the whole weekend outside lol.

Its cold here but not too bad. In the teen right now with windchill a in the stifle digits. Weds the high should be around 42. I love hiking in the 40s. That's my favorite temperature. I hate the summer.

Well, when I was a kid entitled people didn't sue school districts when kids got cold standing out at the bus stop or stranded in a stalled bus, either.

I'm in North Florida... not far from the GA border. So it might not be as cold in Orlando.

I'm guessing in the 60's? So you have a little bit of hope!

Truth, sadly. It's more "parents these days".
