It is Tuesday morning at 10 AM. I hope the school board wins their gamble to go ahead and have schools open today, after a 2 hour late start. The forecast, as I’m writing this letter, is calling for a winter weather advisory beginning at noon. The chance of sleet/freezing rain is forecast. Is a snow day so precious that we can not afford to spend one? In mid January? With a forecast so dicey? Of course by the time this is published the answers will be history, and I do hope the BOE wins their gamble. But was the gamble worth it? Win or lose I say NO! It was still a gamble. Roll the dice? Is that good policy?
