SAMMAMISH -- A Catholic school in Sammamish is canceling school today due in part to "pending snow" -- a day after hundreds of students walked out to protest the resignation of a gay vice principal.
Eastside Catholic School sent out a message announcing that winter break would be starting early due to concerns about icy roads. The message also cited the "difficult day" the school had Thursday.
Eastside Catholic attorney and spokesman Mike Patterson said Vice Principal Mark Zmuda signed a contract that states he would follow the official teachings of the church, and gay marriage violates that contract.
Zmuda's last day was scheduled for Friday.
Patterson says the school only recently learned Zmuda had married his same-sex partner. He also said Zmuda is a good administrator and they plan to give him a good reference.
