A local youth center opened its doors Tuesday to children looking for something to do besides lying around the house because school was canceled.

Gunnar Ortlieb, a freshman at Seymour High School, said he headed to the Boys & Girls Club of Seymour since he didn’t have anything better to do after school officials canceled classes for the 12th day this year because of the cold weather.
