Nanny state nonsense, one other school system and the Hereford zone of Baltimore county was delayed. Who was in the wrong here? Pretty soon an overcast will cause early dismissal.because they aren't sure headlights on all the busses work correctly.

Townships? This isn't Pennsylvania, yo! Did you not notice the copious amounts of salt dumped on the roads,.combined with above freezing temperatures the past week? Oh, I guess not.

Yep, we're gonna' have to begin school session at least an hour later next year because it's too dark out in the morning. Bus drivers can't see, even with head lights on. Safety first, ya'know. Another big argument for starting schools at 10AM is that It's also everyone's fault you are going to work in the morning rush hour before sun rise; is that children do not have enough attention span to pay attention to vehicular traffic when crossing streets, etc. etc.

Create a Hereford zone in Harford County. The school system is so afraid of law suits that it panics when there is a half inch of snow, maybe some icing near the Jarrettsville area, or the possibility of snow in the afternoon for an early dismissal. The kids just go to the mall anyway, nothing stops that. Geech.
