Bellingham Christian students enjoying the weather Friday

Headline Goes Here

BELLINGHAM, Wash. - In Michigan we see our fair share of snow days. In Washington state students are enjoying a sun day. That's right - a sun day.

Students at Bellingham Christian School in Bellingham, Washington are at home enjoying the nice weather.

WATCH: Three years of the sun in three minutes

Principal Bob Sampson announced the day off on the school's site.

Sampson says he wanted to give students a chance to enjoy the weather and re-energize. He says he surveyed parents and floated the idea with the school board before canceling school.

The sun day was made possible because there weren't any days off because of snow this school year.

Friday is not the first time the school has given students the day off because of sunshine. The last time was two years ago.
