BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Snow days are quickly running out for students across the state. Some districts are already planning to make up days at the end of the year.

Gigi Barnett has more.

With a constant batch of snow coming down, the hill at Catonsville Community College beckons.

School is out for students and parents.

“They were making too much noise at home and driving their mom up the wall,” said Bobby Luznar, parent.

Time to take advantage of the snow day.

Reporter: “Are you missing it?”

Student: “No.”

Same answer here…

“Because I don’t want to do math,” said student John Luznar.

But the reserve of snow days for school districts is running out fast.

After Thursday’s outing on the hill, Anne Arundel County schools are fresh out of days, Howard County is in the red by two snow days, Baltimore County is over their allotment by one, Carroll County is over by six, Harford County has one left and Baltimore City has zero.

Makeups are on the way. It’s a real bummer for students who remember last year’s makeup days.

“I remember last year we had a bunch of them, then we had to end up having extra days added on to the year,” John Luznar said.

“We’re both missing a big test today,” said Kendyl White, UMBC student.

If you’re a college student like Kendyl White and Greg Risavi, you’re making up the day, too.

But for now, carpe diem!

“I have a lot of stuff to do today and we’ve had a lot of closings, so I’m a little frustrated about it,” said Risavi. “But I can’t complain about the snow and getting out here and playing.”
