SPRINGFIELD, MO-- While snow days are a treat for kids everywhere, the prolonged time with mom and dad at home can also turn into cabin fever. Some administrators say despite the days off, students do start to miss classes whether they admit it or not. "Not many say they miss the school work. They miss the routine. This is different," says Lisa Williams. Williams is the administrator at the Heritage Youth Development Center near Springfield, Missouri. The after-school program may look like a gym class but it's affiliated with the YMCA. The program offers kids activities during the day and keeps them busy until classes start back up. Williams says a program like this is helping parents and kids beat the boredom.
