COLUMBUS, Ga., Oct. 11 (UPI) -- A Georgia principal said he is crossing off an item on his preretirement to-do list by canceling classes due to beautiful weather.

Len McWilliams, headmaster of the Calvary Christian School in Columbus, said he wanted to find a positive reason to cancel school before he retires at the end of the year, so he decided to call off classes Friday for pleasant weather, The Ledger-Enquirer (Columbus) reported Friday.

"In the late 1980s, I was calling school off one winter day because of the terrible weather," McWilliams said. "The thought occurred to me that it would be great to call school off some day because it was too beautiful a day to go to school."
