Too Cold For School? Local Parents Sound Off on AACPS School Day Decision

Keep them home or send them in? This question sparked a lively debate on the Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch Facebook page.

Too Cold For School? Local Parents Sound Off on AACPS School Day Decision
Is a wind chill of 12 below zero too cold for school?  

Anne Arundel County Public Schools did not think so, but some parents disagreed, weighing in on the schools decision to the tune of more than 500 comments on the AACPS Facebook page

Parents from Edgewater, Davidsonville and South County also had a lot say on the matter, though not every one disagreed with the school's decision to send kids in on time Tuesday. 

Readers weighed in on the Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch Facebook page Tuesday, and it was a mixed bag. Some parents thought school should have been canceled or even delayed due to the risk of frostbite in below zero temperatures. Others felt that parents should bundle up their kids and send them in like any other day. Still others felt like parents should be the ones to make the call—if they though roads were too icy or the wind was too cold, they should keep kids home.
