AP — In sun-deprived Washington state, the promise of nice spring weather has prompted a small private school to give students a day off to enjoy the sunshine. Friday will be a “sun day” of sorts for 205 students at Bellingham Christian School in Bellingham, Wash. Principal Bob Sampson announced the day off on the school’s site. Sampson says he wanted to give students a chance to enjoy the weather and re-energize. He says he surveyed parents and floated the idea with the school board before canceling school. The sun day was also made possible because there weren’t any days off because of snow this school year. Friday is not the first time the school has given students the day off because of sunshine. The last time was two years ago.
This is how China wins people. They go to school for 364 days a year and fight their kindergarteners. In the meantime we see that it’s 70 degrees and partially cloudy and cancel school for a day. While Becky and Jessica chat on Facebook and work their tans, Short Round and Lao Che are learning Calculus at age 10 while reading The Art of War for shits and giggles. Don’t get me wrong. I think it’s important that kids get outside and run around because they’re all starting to look like Honey Boo Boo. But if you for one second think these kids did anything other than sleep till noon and spend the whole day playing Call of Duty, then you are absolutely delusional.
P.S. I bet the parents are PISSED. So you’re just gonna cancel school huh? Because it’s nice outside? That’s cool. Not like we had anything important to do. Like work. You know, that thing we pay you to do.
