Thousands of kids filled Bellevue’s parks, their cul-de-sacs and driveways to play in the snow after classes were cancelled Monday and Tuesday.

The Bellevue School District, Bellevue Christian, the Open Window School, the Eastside Academy, Emerald Heights Academy and the Bellevue Montessori School all cancelled classes on Feb. 6 and 7.
