The headmaster at Calvary Christian School in Columbus, Georgia, cancelled school on Friday because the weather was just too darn nice. According to the local ABC News outlet, the Len McWilliams was tired of canceling school just for bad weather.

“In the late 1980s, I was calling school off one winter day because of the terrible weather,” the headmaster told the Ledger-Enquirer. “The thought occurred to me that it would be great to call school off some day because it was too beautiful a day to go to school.”

With his retirment looming at the end of this year, the headmaster saw today as his chance.

However, there are a few people questioning the headmaster’s decision. The local news station’s meteorologist told the Ledger-Enquirer “If I was paying for my kid (to attend Calvary), I would want my day to be reimbursed.”

With a forecast of sunny skies and temperatures topping out at 83 degrees, the students of Calvary Christian are in for a good three-day weekend.
