It is people finally saying I do not want to get up early on a nice cold day and realizing they are actually able to do so and need an excuse. Oh my an ice cube fell out of my freezer looks like I will be delayed.

I don't get this. There isn't one drop falling outside and it is above freezing. These schools will have to attend well into June. I know it is a hard call to make at times, but really people, get a grip. I hope I don't have to eat my words after this post or perhaps snow.

In today's society (and its a very sad way to live) if anyone was in an accident and was injured or killed, the school would be held responsible for the because someone has to be blamed. Unfortunately that's the way people think these days. I get it but it doesn't make sense to me.

I often wonder how many people who are complaining about the delayed start would act if they hadn't delayed and someone was hurt or worse. Would they be among the first to blame the school?

Delayed starts don't have to be made up. Texas roads aren't equipped for icy weather so starting late allows time for the potential ice to melt. When it comes to the safety of my children I'd rarher play it safe than sorry...even if it did mean adding an extra day at the end of the year.

Here we go
