School never gets cancelled because of the snow in Estonia...or even because of cold. Elementary school children MAY stay at home when it is -25 ºC or colder (windchill) but in high school you have to go to school no matter what the weather is. We even have gymnastics outdoors with up to -15 ºC (windchill).
But if something happens with the heating system, when the indoor temperature is less than +19 ºC you should not have lessons in that room. Although I remember clearly sitting in a classroom with a thermometer that showed +17 ºC and no one cared about our complaints...

AMAZING. How fun would it be to go hang out in a Hollywood costume closet and try on all of those amazing dresses?! (assuming I had magically transformed into a size 4 and could actually fit in them) That is so fun!!

Our school cancellation policy has recently been clarified - in both Indiana and Michigan, it takes -25F windchill (or below) when kids are either getting on the bus or leaving school (or both), or 12 inches of unplowed snow. If we have 12 inches of snow, but the roads are mostly clear, they'll still have school. If there are 8 inches of snow on the road, we'll have school. And yet both places have run out of scheduled snow days and will be adding days onto the end of the year because of both Polar Vortexes. I mean, c'mon. This winter is ridiculous. I also love the policy that the kids have outdoor recess unless the temperatures are below 0F. ZERO. My kids take two bags of stuff to school - a backpack with school stuff, and a snow bag with all of their snow gear (snow pants, gloves, hats, scarves).
