Area schools benefitting from lack of snow days

Hawley, MN (WDAY TV) - Area schools are benefiting from our winter-less winter.

By: WDAY Staff Reports, WDAY

Area schools are benefiting from our winter-less winter. With so few storms to deal with the past few months, many schools, including Hawley, have made it through the year with no snow days. They are hoping for no surprises the rest of March. Hawley does not build storm days into the school year, so there is relief no days will have to be made up. It has been good for the school pocketbook as well.

Phil Jensen – Hawley Superintenden: β€œIt has not only helped our being in school but heating costs and snow removal costs and the whole budget as well.”

They are not home free yet. Jensen remembers shoveling snow from in front of the school before prom.
