To the editor:
I cannot believe how often school has been closed this year for snow. School has been called off for a half-inch of snow and even when there was a chance of snow. It’s a good thing our school officials don’t live in New York, we would never have school. Do the officials not want to get out or the bus drivers afraid to drive in it? What is the problem?
These kids are going to have to go all summer just to make up these days.
Parents and grandparents work, not everybody has someone they can call to keep the kids. We cannnot just call in everytime a snowflake hits the ground. Jobs are hard to keep right now without this added hardship.
The school daycare is open. If the parents can take them to daycare they can take them for school. But then – the schools get a lot of money for daycare. A lot of extra money. I think $35 a day is totally out of line.
People are having trouble keeping food on the table right now, they have to work every day. Paying $35 a day for daycare uses a lot of grocery money.
We pay out-of-sight taxes for the use of these schools not to mention all the other fees they can come up with. Charges for daycare need to be scaled way down. What are we paying these high school kids to watch the little ones?
