Bishop Donahue's 'Cyber Day' Test a Success for Students on Snow Day

Posted: Updated:

With students out of school for such a long period of time, one local high school has successfully found a way to get school work to their students on a snow day.

All the students and staff at Bishop Donahue have Ipads equipped with apps, digital textbooks and programs just for school work. But snow make-up days are piling up and so teachers are now sending work home for the kids when school is canceled. Principal Tom Wise said yesterday was the Cyber Day test and it went well so they're going to continue to use the system.

"it's a great way to keep kids on track and not fall back academically, to keep things consistent. So that when we walk back into the classroom whether that be tomorrow or Thursday, we can pick up knowing that we have those two days. That they've done the work and know where they're at and you know we can move forward from there," said Bishop Donahue Principal Tom Wise.

The Cyber Day counts as a snow make-up day and Tuesday was their second cyber day. Now, they have 4 snow days to make up.
