Bribing Your Way to a Snow Day

Doc Cornman is the school superintendent in Hillsboro, Missouri. It's his job to determine whether school will be held during winter weather. His students are not above bribery to get a day off, as evidenced by this Tweet.   

Cornan is beginning to get used to this kind of thing.

This isn't the first time Cornman has received candy when the snow starts falling.  Last year someone dropped off some Hershey bars.  He tweets, "This is the second time over the past year the mysterious candy has appeared. They never ring the doorbell, never knock, it's just placed on the front porch for me to see when I walk out to check the weather. Local Girl Scouts have offered to bring by my favorite cookies as well."

Cornman let his students know that he prefers Reese's Cups to Hershey bars, and they remembered. He wasn't the only target of a bribery attempt. Dr. Link Luttrell, the superintendent of Festus, Missouri, schools, got this.

Ultimately, the bribes did not work. Both the Hillsboro and the Festus schools were in session after the snow event this week. -via reddit
