OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - It wasn’t a perfect storm, but several factors worked together to keep a lot of Oshkosh public school students out of class Friday.
As much as 41 percent of the students at one of the district’s high schools stayed home.
They were kept away by the first major snow storm of the season, rumors of a weapon threat a Oshkosh North High School, and an alleged prediction by the Mayans hundreds of years ago that the world would end Friday.
Some students were just starting their Christmas vacation early. Classes resume January 2nd.
