    May I just point out the fact that our school board is thinking about keeping schools open even if bus service is cancelled due to inclement weather and yet this same school board postponed the meeting scheduled for tonight (a meeting about this very topic) due to inclement weather....hmmm, if they aren't willing to risk it, why should we be expected to risk taking our children in it??? I think this action should answer the question for them.

    I assume the school board believes there will be minimal turnout to the meeting tonight and it is important to avoid possible hazards for those people trying to get there. However, shouldn't they board members still attend for those who can make it. Isn't this the same School Board looking into having teachers report to schools during snow days when turnout is also likely to be minimal. If it's good for the goose....
