When most people were in school, snow days meant that you essentially received a surprise holiday from mother nature. These days, schools are moving to replace snow days and other extreme weather off days with online learning — and they’re using Google to do it. During inclement weather, all students at Anderson School District 5 in South Carolina now receive assignments electronically through their Google Chromebook, which will not require internet service. The Chromebooks are provided to students by the district at no cost.  The district’s first “eLearning Day” was on Oct. 11, when schools were closed because of Hurricane Michael.
