Most of the kids will probably not go to school Monday anyway.

There it goes again more teacher bashing. No wonder the kids dont respect the teachers or school. Look what they are taught at home.

You poor parent, you actually have to take care of your child. No wonder these kids come to school so lost and out if control!!! When a parent complains about having to feed their child....that just makes me sick. And I meant poor parent as in lacking, slacking, lazy, a**hole!!!!!

I am a teacher and a parent. Yes while school is out YOU the parent have to take care of YOUR children!!!! I didn't want to be out today and have a make up day but guess what, I believe the children's lives as well as parents and teachers lives would have been in danger on the streets today.. Get over yourself!

My life was endangered too. But guess what! I had to go anyway. People still have to have banks and hospitals and gas stations even when there's a little ice. So there has to be people to run them. YOU should be thanking ME for risking MY life today so that the world can continue to rotate and serve ungrateful and selfish people like you.

Blytheville and the surrouding areas are not like cities inthe north. They city and county do not invest in equipment to remove ice and snow off of the roads like it should be removed. The state is not proactive as they should be in this area about snow and ice removal. One time about 3 years ago, my son had an orthodontist appointment in Jonesboro, I had to drive him to this appointment with ice on the road. In Blytheveille, highway 18 was still icy with patches of snow still there. When I got up around Manila, the roads were clear and there were very few patches of ice. Our leadership is not proactive in standing up to the highway department on our behalf.

On these snow/ice days, usually 2 or 3 Admn., Transportation Director, & bus mechanic for the school districts get out and drive not only city streets, but county roads & bridges before a decision is made about school closings. They have to look at the big picture, not just the major roads. Would you like to drive a school bus on ice/snow thats 56' long with 40 to 60 kids on board? Blytheville sends out 30, & Gosnell sends out 18.
