School cancellation is difficult choice



Just heard on the news last night that some were upset that school was canceled Jan. 17 because the weather didn’t get as bad as forecast. Our supervisors at the board of education use many resources to decide what to do about school. I am sure this is a very stressful decision they have to make.

Also, I would be sure in assuming that everyone would prefer the children be at school, but someone must choose what is best with the information received. I sure would not want to make such a call either way.

I do thank you for what you do, and both my children completed their 12 years without incident. Good job.
