First winter storm shutters schools in northern Utah
LOGAN, Utah — Schools were canceled Tuesday morning throughout Logan and Cache County due to an early winter storm. Heavy, wet snow brought down tree branches onto power lines, knocking out electricity to homes and businesses as well.
The National Weather Service reported Logan received 11-1/2 inches of snow, as reported by KSL’s Heather Kelly.
Students in the area did not have power to do virtual or online learning. The snow day on Tuesday will be made up later in the calendar year.
Cache County School District spokesman Tim Smith said school districts have started to pivot to virtual or online learning days when bad weather strikes, but in this case, both the schools and the students’ homes didn’t have electricity.
“That makes it really difficult for a student to sign on, when they don’t have power themselves. Impossible, in fact,” Smith said.
Four Cache County schools were forced to close and all of the Logan City School District closed.
“It wasn’t a snow day across the entire school district. It’s just four schools that we ended up having to cancel because of no power inside those schools,” Smith said.
