Iola students who ventured outside for their first day of spring break Friday were greeted by nearly 4 inches of snow that fell overnight, providing ample opportunity for fun. Because it’s Kansas weather, forecasts call for 70-degree weather by the end of the weekend, and anywhere between zero and 14 more snow events by the time spring finally arrives.
