I'm sure parents and children alike appreciate they are being informed they are on a 2 hour delay, it would be nice if other counties follow suit. It is 8 degrees right now, so I think most counties will be on a 2 hour delay in the morning. Way to go counties that have already posted that, others, such as Raleigh, learn from example. Raleigh county doesn't make a move til Fayette does, they can't seem to make the decisions on their own. It's like his every delay or closing we have they wait and see what Fayette does. Make your own decisions.

I don't live in WV anymore, but I hated that, too, when we lived here . We would be getting ready to leave or sometimes we would be already in the car, and the news would announced it at the last minute. Very annoying.

I totally agree RCBOE needs to get out of bed and shake the webs out of the head and check out the secondary roads for they are the last to get touched by state road if at alland this morning they are very slick,ICY. I FOR ONE DO NOT WANT MY CHILDRENS LIVES TO BE IN DANGER.In our area we have lots of secondary roads they the RCBOE needs to take this into their decisions,WE NEEDED A 2 HOUR DELAY TODAY.

This is unbelievable! Raleigh County should have had a 2 hour delay, it is so cold, these backroads are very bad, plus some of the school parking lots are horrible. They make decisions on days that some say may be questionable as to the students could have went, and then do nothing about days like today. They get paranoid over these snow days and delays, then they want to start limiting them. You cannot control the weather, worry more about the kids rather than how to juggle your precious snow days or delays.

It would be nice to have some notice a little ahead of time for those parents (like Myself)who work so that we can make other arrangements for our children. When they wait until the last minute, then you have to rush around to find a sitter for the day. Another prime example of the sorry school board in Raleigh County!!!!!

I took my daughter to school this a.m. and ask why there was'nt a two hour delay.The person i spoke with said certain folks at the board were more concerned with the fact the teachers would not be teaching for two hours than the safety of the kids.She said i should call TWO FIVE SIX FOUR FIVE SIX ZERO
and speak with Jerry Redden(TANSPORTATION DIRECTOR).I'm going to.This is a prime example of someone being in charge of something that has absolutely no common sense.

In fayette county places like montgomery and meadow bridge, have completely different kinds of weather. But I think it was most likely cold all over. Monroe and summers had a delay and I'm sure it was just as cold in surrounding counties. I guess it depends how much hot coffee the trans. dir. drank.

You've got to understand,the board here in Raleigh County can't make effective decisions on it's own. They are very afraid of anything that requires decisions and are poor managers. Educated horses................

Trust me, I don't think they are the only ones that wear their coats to class.

i think there is a rule about there cant be class-school unless its 17 degrees. ill look it up. my son didnt go to school today, hes only missed 1.5 days this year and he already has the cold coming on and i wasnt sending him due to the fact he is in an outdoor classroom.
