Christina School District closings have parents concerned and frustrated

See also

"We never got out of school this much when it snowed or was cold." This and many other complaints can be read from parents within the Christina School District after learning schools will be closed on Tuesday due to the frigid temperatures. Many cannot understand why "a little ice, a little snow, and some cold" is keeping their children out of school.

Why Are Christina Schools Closed Tuesday?

The reason Christina School District gives for the school closings is the anticipation of icy road conditions, low temperatures, and wind chill estimates. School is closed for the children tomorrow. However, it looks like staff is still expected to come in, as offices will open one hour late, Tuesday morning.

Cecil County Schools Remain Open Tuesday

So far, Cecil County Public schools are still in session for Tuesday. This knowledge is probably adding more to New Castle County parents' confusion. Cecil County Public Schools issued this statement on its website after 4pm Monday evening:

"Temperatures in our region will fall to record lows beginning this evening and over the next several days. Please keep this in mind and take necessary measures if your child will need to be outside for any length of time such as walking to school or waiting for the bus.

The Cecil County Health Department advises that the best way to stay warm is to keep your head covered, wear multiple layers of light-weight, loose-fitting clothing, wear sturdy or water-proof shoes, and keep all extremities covered. Parents can also consider driving their child to school or to the bus stop if possible.

For more information on how to prepare for very cold temperatures, visit the Health Department’s website at www.cecilcountyhealth.org under the heading Staying Safe in Cold Weather."

Who do you think is making the right call with school closings? Is it Christina School District or Cecil County Schools? Sound off in the comments.
