Snow day no day for kids to sit at home

Freed from class, Littleton kids hit the sledding hill

Posted

Eddie Pulsipher was afraid he woke up late for school on Feb. 25, but then he got the news every kid hopes to hear: snow day!

Following a blizzard that left much of the Denver area under more than a foot of snow, Littleton Public Schools was one of a few districts that called an honest-to-goodness snow day — nearby districts like Denver, Englewood and Jefferson County continued with remote learning.

Freed from class, Eddie, 9, and his buddy Murray Trunnell, also 9, joined the throngs hitting the sledding hill at Goddard Middle School in west Littleton.

“It feels like I left gravity,” Eddie said as he hauled his sled back up the hill after careening over a dad-built snow jump. “This is a lot more fun than class.”
