Many local schools/districts cancelled classes two hours early yesterday and have
scheduled two-late starts today cancelled classes today (Northfield school-closing info here).
I noticed some people
bitching whining thoughtfully discussing this on Facebook yesterday and today. Some comments:
JP: “Why not just call a snow day right off the bat, rather than forcing everyone on the roads twice within four hours?”
HS: “I never understand why "big" schools never close right way but they have no problem closing in the middle of the day. I went to a small school and they always canceled snow early in the day. It was much safer!”
MU: “And how about just a full snow day today instead of making us bring the kids in 2 hours late in the middle of the work day when the roads still are dangerous?”
We don’t know what guides the decisions by Supt. Chris Richardson after he talks to the folks at Benjamin Bus. But put your supe hat on. How would you go about deciding?
