1) Why was there no delay this morning? Every other local school system I checked was either delayed or closed for winter break. The last I checked Springfield isn't located in a biosphere with magically better weather or road conditions.
2) When we do close or delay, our system always seems to either decide, or publish such information much later than the other systems as well. In fact, I was thrilled to be awakened at 1230am with the inclement weather phone call when nearly every other system was posted at about 7pm the previous evening.
Who is responsible for these decisions and why does our system insist on taking the safety of our children and families so casually?
