School districts running low on snow days

CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - An unusual amount of icy weather this year caused Central Arkansas districts to close schools. While a snow day can provide some much needed rest and relaxation, too many days away from class can actually start to eat into a much anticipated summer vacation.

A snow or ice day answers the dreams of many students.

"Sleep in till eleven o'clock in the morning instead of six o'clock," said Conway High School Sophomore, Trey Smith.

This is the third day nixed by the weather for Smith and he is fine with the day off.

"Just whatever we feel like doing...going to get lunch somewhere, just do what we feel like," said Smith.

Smith, his brother and father went to Game Stop on the day off.

While students relish the moments, educators know the time will have to be made up.
