When it is below -45C (-49F) schoolchildren from first to fifth grade do not go to school. When iy is colder than -47C (-52.6F) eighth graders are also permitted to stay at home. When it becomes as cold as -50C (-58F) all children miss school classes. Many years ago they didn’t go to school but they didn’t stay at home either. They came outside and played different winter games. Today they prefer the Internet and video games.

Winter is more a state of mind than the temperature outside. Even very cold days can be bright and wonderful.
