Not a Snow Day... but a Sun Day for Bellingham School

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, Wash. - You've heard of snow days, but what about a sun day?

Nice spring weather is prompting a small private school in western Washington to cancel school for the day, so students can enjoy the sunshine. 

Friday, the 205 students at Bellingham Christian School got the day off. The principal says he wanted to give students a chance to enjoy the weather and re-energize after surveying parents and checking with the school board.

He says the sun day was possible because the school didn't take any days off because of snow this year.

The last time the school had a sun day was two years ago.
