Spring break comes to snowy end for UConn students

STORRS, CT (WFSB) -

Monday was supposed to end spring break for students at the University of Connecticut.

However, a snow storm slightly extended that break for some.

A school spokesperson said the school didn't want students trying to drive back during the bad weather, so it made a decision on Sunday to cancel classes until noon.

Several inches of snow were on the ground early Monday morning. The area was forecasted to get between 2 and 5 inches.

It's enough to make roads approaching the Storrs campus slick.

Plows crews continue to work to clear the roads and sidewalks in time for classes to resume.

The school said dining halls and public safety were not affected.

Late Sunday afternoon, school officials sent out an alert to students that morning classes at all UConn campuses would be cancelled. 

"I wouldn’t want to move in in this, the roads are fine," Jennifer Moore, who is a graduate student at UConn. "It’s the driving part that’s [bad], but moving in I wouldn’t want to do this." 

"They can’t really predict things ahead of time, so it’s better to play it safe then to just open it up and have someone come in and get injured," Matthew Arremony, who is a UConn freshman, said.
