Hopkins Students Mourn Missing Snow Day

Students took to social media to plea for a snow day — only to have a two-hour late start instead.

Hopkins High School’s early release Monday had many Hopkins looking forward to a snow day Tuesday. That wasn’t to be, though. The district announced in the mourning that school would just be delayed two hours—prompting students to register their complaints on Twitter.

I sure hope someone contacted these students' parents to get an ok to print their tweets and their names

Twitter's whole purpose is to broadcast one's thoughts widely. No permission was needed. Storify, the program used to compile the tweets above, rests on that assumption. You don't even need to use a third-party program since Twitter's search function will easily direct you to them. For those who want to limit their tweets to a narrower audience, Twitter has privacy settings that they could be using. And really, this is just a light-hearted story about the pain I'm sure we've all felt when we just missed out on a snow day.
