A Gainesville preparatory school is proving snow days could become a thing of the past. Lakeview Academy teachers piloted “remote school” Wednesday, where students did classwork from home on a computer. “We just came off a long holiday break and had three great days of school, but now the ice has come and we can’t get to school,” Berry said. “We don’t want to interrupt that process, and this will allow us to pick up where we were last week.” The remote school was created in 2009, in case the school needed to close due to an influenza outbreak.
