Rapid City students enjoy snow day at the YMCA

Posted:

Friday was the first snow day of the school year in Rapid City, and some kids spent their day at the YMCA, but not as many as you might think.

It was too cold for school and too cold for sledding, so some students spent their snow day playing at the Y.

YMCA Outreach Director Shawn Hayford says they probably had about 50 students at the Y Friday, which is a little less than on a regular school day. But he says because of all the hype about the approaching storm this week he thinks families were a little bit more prepared. "There's no such thing as a typical snow day at the Y," said Hayford. "It just depends on how bad it is outside and we've been kind of slow most of the day, but [we] just try to be open for those that needed to be somewhere and needed somewhere for their kidos to be."

"Today we got up at around 11:00 and we just came here that was all pretty much and I just played with one of the Y persons," said 4th grader Julie Valandra.

Julie she's hoping to spend her weekend sledding once the storm calms down.
