No early dismissal. The last bus just left one of the late elementary schools at 5:00 - 1 hour 10 minutes late.

Whoever was in charge of making the decision whether or not to have early dismissal during a blizzard, really blew it. Thankfully, all of our kids got home safely. Thank you to all of our dedicated bus drivers.

My childrens bus was in an accident on the way home with them. Both the bus and a car hit an ice patch and crashed. The car was also coming home from picking up school children. The school should have had early dismissal.

You can blame it on the superintendent. All warnings were issued. The biggest problem is not having access to extra buses. Buses weren't leaving early elementary schools until after 4 and then driving treacherous routes. The did not get to the late elementary schools until well after 5. By then most parents picked their children up. If you could get through to the school or to the transportation office, you were told that buses were running "a few minutes late."

Parents need to tell Dr. Annuziata that he made the wrong decision so he will think twice about it next time. Next time there is a dangerous storm warning I will urge my son to keep the kids home and I'm sure many parents will do the same. The secretary at my gs's school told me lots of parents picked kids up early. Good for them!
