EDITOR'S NOTE: This story was published back in January 2017. It was one of our most-viewed stories of the year and is part of our Year In Review.


The students of the Cherokee Co. School District are patiently waiting for a long awaited call for an early, snow-filled weekend.

Unfortunately, no such luck.

Cherokee Co. Schools are one of the few districts that are not calling for an early closing, unlike many other school districts.

Students took to Twitter and questioned their decision.

Whoever is in charge of the Cherokee Co. Schools Twitter account sure had some witty responses to their students' suggestions.
