It all has to do with liability. One bus accident and the county is out millions in law suits.
It is cheaper to let them stay home until the subdivisions are clear than take a chance.
One heavy snow year does not justify investment in snow removal equipment equal to what they have up north.
I was also raised in the north and enjoy only seeing winter only every 7 years, but it is worth it to keep the kids out of school.
I also enjoy the snow every few years, and I do realize it's the libility. That's the problem with our whole society. They have more of a chance getting injured staying home on these days. HS are still driving around, like I said, they are sledding, most without supervision, and doing everything but going to school. Let parents drop off instead of using the bus. And yes, it is cheaper to keep them home than dealing with a lawsuit, but that's not my concern. It's the education of our children. I have a home daycare. I see that school is not giving them everything they need for the future, and then missing all these days, they really suffer. I am having the children do some worksheets I printed off the computer. They are complaining, but I feel they need to do it. I wish I would have pushed my boys more in their younger days. But I do agree, it's all about law suits.
