The snow came as a welcome surprise for thousands of Southern Colorado youngsters who got the day off from school Wednesday, but not every student got to stay home and play in the snow. Harrison School District was the only Springs school district to stay open, not even 2 hours late. Superintendent Mike Miles says snow days are a big financial burden for a lot of parents who have to miss work to take care of their kids. It's one reason the district keeps classs going as long the streets are safe enough for the school buses. In contrast, all other districts in the Springs closed. Many including D-11 considered opening 2 hours late but thought closing was a better idea in case the weather got worse.
