RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment. Schools are closed today because of the weather. Regents exams are postponed until tomorrow. However, YOU are the parents. The school district is not your child’s parent. If you feel that conditions outside are unsafe in your neighborhood or on your road – despite what the school district may determine for the entire school district – please do not send your child to school. That responsibility is YOURS, not the school district’s.
Money and funding play no role in the school district’s decision about opening or closing school; it is based on reports from highway departments, our transportation director and local weather forecasts. Safety is in fact what it is about – nobody at the school district wants to see an accident happen or children get hurt. Please make that decision for yourself and for your family, despite what Scotia-Glenville may determine.
