For the most part, all students and teachers love snow days.
Until the closures amount to the point where previously scheduled extended weekends, week-long breaks, and even graduation dates are compromised.
That's what's happened throughout much of New Jersey this winter season, as the winter storm season kept many students snowed in and schools closed. For one school district in Bergen County, however, a nor'easter wasn't going to stand in its way of education.
Pascack Valley students spent Thursday, Feb. 13 snowed in but still learning, as the district held a day of virtual class, nj.com reported. Each student has a district-issued laptop they were able to use while learning from home, the report said.
The day of schoolwork, however, has yet to be considered a class day, as virtual schooling is yet to be approved by the New Jersey Department of Education, the report said.
So, should New Jersey recognize out-of-school virtual learning as class time?
