The snowflake icon on the Weather app means more than just snow for Wake County students: it also means no school.  Wake County is infamous for closing schools easily during the winter months and letting their students know through sassy tweets.  

The weather forecast shows snow for this weekend and the talk has already begun about school being cancelled.  People are wondering how many days we might miss for this. The only options are Spring Break, which is pretty much our only time off in the second semester, or some random teacher work days here and there. It is also possible that we will be using banked days.

Wake County has around 160,000 students in the district and it extends across just under 900 square miles.  With a county this big, it could be snowing in one place and sunny in another, meaning that the range of schools that need cancellations is huge.  Sometimes students at Green Hope have cancelled school when its sunny and 75.

With these upcoming possible days off, students are anxiously waiting to see what the WCPSS twitter will come up with.  In preparation for the saucy tweets, one can look back at previous years. Below are some great examples:

In 2006, a picture of Capital Boulevard went viral after funny images were photoshopped into it.  

We’ll be on the edge of our seats to see if school is cancelled. This weekend will be filled with hopeful glances out the window and refreshing the weather channel.
