A lake-effect snowstorm dumped nearly six feet of snow in parts of Northern New York over the last several days. The storm left Buffalo Public Schools students to partake in a tradition that’s been threatened since schools adapted to remote instruction during the pandemic: a true snow day.

With schools closed and no remote instruction planned, here’s a look at how they’ve been making the most of this early season storm.
