I live in Boca and I will NOT be sending my two kids to school Monday morning, I am outraged and angry that the PBC school system plans to have school when the weather has clearly stated that the morning and afternoon will still continue to have high winds, rain and horrible driving conditions! Why would they endanger OUR children like this?

The first day of school is hectic and stressful enough, missed stops, late buses, etc.....why make it worse with this horrible terrible weather? why risk accident injury a missing child or worse?? For one lousy day of school? What a ignorant selfish decision has been made and our kids will pay the price, I am sure the people who made this stupid decision will NOT be driving buses through high winds and rain trying to keep our kids safe and alive. How stupid can they be????

I am keeping my kids homes and I implore all parents to do the same, send a message to the PBC schools that we, as parents, will NOT endanger our child during hurricane like conditions, just so they do not have to make up a "missed day", when someone gets hurt or an accident occurs "We are sorry we were wrong" will not cut it! keep our kids home safe and dry tommorow, we have that right.

Someone should have sent YOU to school. Back in the 1960s school corridors and walkways FLOODED after a hurricane and we still showed up for school. We took off our shoes and waded between classes. Your kids aren't that fragile. Generations of South Florida kids have been getting themselves to school in spite of hurricanes and heat. Tell me your kids' classrooms are air conditioned now. Ours weren't. Amazing, isn't it, that we not only survived but managed to graduate with the ability to write sentences that are grammatically correct?

Good grief. Your precious darlings won't drown. You need to grow a spine.
