Kids enjoy snow at Fox Hill Park following school

Local News

Wednesday’s big snowstorm carried over into Thursday, with flurries, but it wasn’t enough to keep valley kids out of school because the Clark County School District decided not to cancel classes.

But the potential for freezing conditions on the roadways did cause CCSD to cancel all evening activities, school-sponsored events, and education classes scheduled to start after 4 p.m. due to the weather. 

Safekey programs ended early Wednesday, public Clark County closed at 3:30 p.m. and public City of Las Vegas sites closed at 4 p.m.

After being stuck indoors all day, many kids in Summerlin flocked to Fox Hills Park to enjoy the winter wonderland.

The park was filled with people sledding, making snowmen, along with having snowball fights.

For other kids, playing in the snow was the best conclusion to a great day.

“They let us play in the field and it was so fun,” said Anastasia Kouzimina, a 2nd Grader at Vassiliadis Elementary School.  “It was snowing, and for me, it was so fun! At school, we couldn’t stop thinking about it. We really loved it!”

Some kids 8 News NOW spoke with at the park didn’t wait for school to be released to play in the snow because, despite classes being in session, their parents allowed them to stay home and have a snow day.
