But last week, he witnessed a first in his career.
The Northview High School Principal, in addition to NHS boys' athletic director Charley Jackson, stayed at the school Friday evening with members of the South Vermillion boys' and girls' basketball squads.
"That was a first," Romas told The Brazil Times. "I've heard of schools doing this, but I've never had to do that."
The ice began to pelt the Wabash Valley at approximately 8 p.m., Friday, as the Northview boys were facing South Vermillion in a Western Indiana Conference boy-girl doubleheader.
With conditions worsening, officials made the decision to cancel the second half of the game.
However, the icy weather conditions eventually forced a Level 1 Emergency in Vigo County, leaving the South Vermillion school buses with no chance of getting home.
"That created a bit of a problem," South Vermillion Community Schools Supt. Dave Chapman told The Times.
Chapman said he remained in contact with the bus drivers and officials with the Clay County Sheriff's Department throughout the ordeal. He said it was suggested the buses wait until the weather system had passed.
It was decided the South Vermillion teams would stay at Northview until Saturday morning.
"With (the storm system and roads) in mind, (Chapman) made the decision to keep the kids here where they were safe," Romas said.
Some parents of South Vermillion players also stayed at the school overnight. In addition, Chapman said he remained in constant contact with family members who did not make the trip to Brazil.
Romas said Jackson got some tumbling mats for the students to sleep on. In addition, he said a South Vermillion parent went to the Brazil McDonald's and purchased 100 cheeseburgers for the students. The school also opened up its pop machines for the players to have beverages.
"They were good kids," Romas said. "I think the kids played basketball until about 4 a.m. I think they had a pretty good time. They were a good bunch of people."
Chapman said he was grateful that Romas and Jackson elected to stay with the students throughout the evening.
"Both Lynn Romas and Charley Jackson were absolutely fantastic to work with," Chapman said. "A bad situation really turned out well. Everything that could have possibly needed to be done was done. I think everybody stepped up and made it a good situation.
"The students spent the evening in the gym. They were safe. They got to have a slumber party. I can't thank (Romas and Jackson) enough."
After the emergency was lifted, the South Vermillion students left Brazil at approximately 7 a.m.
"It was a long night, but it was something that needed to be done," Chapman said. "I'd rather error on the side of safety when we're traveling."
