To the parents complaining about the Boulder schools being closed;
I’ve live here nearly 10 years and schools have only been closed twice before for snow, and never two days in a row…the streets near my house are NOT bare and wet…I could barely find my car, and had to dig it out and put some non-clumping cat litter down to get in and out of my parking spot…I spun out once and slid several times…..yes I do know how to drive…and it continued to snow ALL DAY…we live in Colorado…so what? What does it prove to send students to school in dangerous conditions? Not all families have four wheel drive vehicles with heated seats, not all parents can drive their kids to school. Without the school buses on the roads, things were safer for everyone… less traffic..more room for essential personnel, like police officers and fire fighters, and hospital staff…every year there are students in BVSD who wait outside in sub zero temps for over an hour for buses, and not all of them have boots, gloves, coats….most of the time the schools are open and it’s tough on them… I’m grateful that this one time… they didn’t have to be out in the weather…believe it or not folks…you are not the only people that BVSD has to think about…are you the same parents that send your kids to school with a fever or bad cough..dosed-up on medication, spreading what they have to everyone else.. and endangering themselves with compromised immune systems? For your career? How much non e-business got done yesterday anyway? So you had to spend a couple of extra days at home with your family….I’ll bet you’re tough enough to survive it… after all, this is Colorado….did your boss really yell at you? Or are you the boss?
