Letter to the Editor: Why did Warren schools close?


What is wrong with our school system? Or is it the transportation office that makes this call? Closing on Dec. 11 for what?

The other surrounding counties were open and yet our county decided the night before to close the schools. If anything, this county could have gone in two hours late.

Who really wanted a free day off? Our buses do not travel up any mountains to pick up students, they make the students come down to the main roads to catch the bus, so what is the excuse?

Our buses have chains on them, but in the 10 plus years I’ve lived here, I’ve not seen them in use. Why go to the expense of the chains when we close schools at the thought of a snow flake falling?
