We have had some snow, sleet and ice in the last couple weeks, and since the buses have to drive down very twisty back roads to get to school, they have cancelled school a few days because of weather. It sounds silly some days with the small amount, and people like to complain, but one day when Stafford schools closed because of ice and a nearby school system went on a 2-hour delay, a bus full of children slipped on ice and crashed. So I am thankful for the extra precautions. We try to do fun things on winter-weather days.
