Thank God no one was hurt worse. As a parent, I seen how bad the roads were around 5:30AM in Kent County and was surprised there was no school closings.

"The bus was stopped with all required emergency lights and signs activated"

A bus has emergency lights? I wonder what kind of emergencies they respond to?

I was surprised to learn neither of these were caused by the bus driver. Seems like I see a lot of school buses driving too fast. Just this morning at 8:30 am on extremely slippery roads I noticed two school buses on the southbound side of 31 in the fast lane passing everyone.

I am a parent of Bangor students and when we looked out and seen the roads we kept our children home. We have chosen to do this a few times this year because we felt our children would not be safe on the bus due to the roads. I am not sure if Bangor is second guessing cancelling school due to the early amounts of snow and not wanting to make up school days but I am sorry, consider the children next time. Praise God, no one was seriously injured but still they need to consider what they are responsible for.

I do not understand why school buses do not have seatbelts and insist that they be used. This is a complete mystery.
