Parents Want More Snow Days
By: Amy Jacquin
Vicky Martin's driveway is steep. She parks on top during bad weather.... but she still got stuck Monday morning! So it was another snow day for her third-grade daughter Samantha. "I don't feel penalized, and we're not asking for special treatment," says Vicky. "I just think a couple of the days when classes were held, should have been made-up at the end of the year."
Dr. Bell says safety always comes first. Then he just tries to save the district some money. "We still have to heat the building, even when we don't have class," he says. "There's always a skeletal crew working in the building."
