ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – With all the snow that didn’t come over the weekend, many parents were asking: why wasn’t there school on Monday?

Spokesman for the Parkway District Paul Tandy says calling off classes was based on personal observations by the Superintendent.

“He was out driving the roads and it was in the condition on the roads,” says Tandy.

He says considering Parkway has a lot of students who walk and drive themselves to school, it was a no-go.

At St. Louis Public Schools, spokesman Patrick Wallace admits the decision was made Sunday evening, but for good reason.

“Between 6 and 7 is when our superintendent made the decision based on the forecast, based on what we already had, based on the cold temperatures,” says Wallace.

And it was that forecast combination of sleet, snow, ice and frigid temperatures that chalked up monday as another snow day.
