Do teachers and children in China, Korea, and Japan get snow days?

We are on our second state of emergency here in Massachusetts. The Boston Public Schools are shut down for two days. The MBTA shut down bus, subway, and train service at 7 pm this evening and will keep public transit shut down through Tuesday.

The former Soviet contingent of our household said “We never had snow days in Moscow.” What about the subway system? “Never stopped,” she responded. “And the buses pretty much ran all the time as well.”

Readers: Who grew up in China, Korea, or Japan? What happened to school when it snowed heavily?
