SEATTLE (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.
