ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Students at St. John Vianney High School took to Twitter on Sunday night to lobby their principal for a snow day. Many area schools were calling off classes because of a storm on Sunday that left sleet, snow and bitter cold. Roads were so bad that the Missouri Department of Transportation issued a no travel advisory over the weekend.
According to a release from the school Principal Tim Dilg considered the students campaign on Sunday night. He rewarded the students with an automated call at 6am on Monday. The call had the answer they were looking for. Mr. Dilg revealed that classes would be called off on Monday. Vianney students got their snow day.
The school says the decision to call off school was determined due to road conditions, not the students’ lobbying
