So this is how myself and at least 6 other area superintendents felt AGAIN this morning. This weather is insane. Each school has its own reasons for canceling. This AM's air temp was -12. Buses don't like -12 because they take soooooo long to heat up. We began an early start schedule this winter where the buses are started almost 60 minutes before they pick up their first kid. Also, kids at bus stops in -12 air temps isn't good. If we lived in a climate where this was normal we would all be acclimated and we would all dress appropriately. But we don't, kids aren't, and kids definitely do not! Mornings like this make me want to pull out what little hair I have left. I am sure you and most of our kids really do want school to be open.
Tomorrow's forecast looks to be a similar day with slightly warmer temperatures. Please dress the kids for the cold. We will try again tomorrow.
