Admit it: If you're a student, you maaaay have set your phone to maximum volume in hopes of receiving a school closing alert this winter, and rejoiced when you heard the pinging sound. If so... you were not alone.
Students across Virginia and Maryland got the day off Monday due to icy conditions, and Thursday's weather means the snow days are still racking up.
Last year, many school districts had to make up missed time on holidays or by extending their school year.
