Yes Mr Jimmy I suppose it could have happened to anybody but it was a bus that it happened to!!!Buses are bigger than mini vans and the higher profiles of it put it at greater risk of knocking something down such as the wires and branches the crews were taking care of!!! Its too bad that Leominster couldnt do what surrounding towns have done and cancelled school until Jan. because then she could request a waiver to over ride the days missed due to the Ice Storm but now we will be going longer than these towns who missed those 7 or so days!!!
Take heed of the warnings and be safe today!!!

People complain about the kids not making the grade and how the schools are failing and then you complain that they are going to have to go to school longer to make up the days. Gee, so they go to school until the end of June, big deal.

My friend in Hampstead, NH is still without power, as is half of his town. Guess what? They had school yesterday. At least the kids had 2 warm meals and enjoyed some heat and were able to get out of a cold, dark house for a while. He works at the school and said many of the kids were happy to be in school and out of the house. Stop turning the children into babies who can't cope when things aren't "perfect". Life isn't perfect and they need to learn how to adapt and handle change.

Kids can hurt because they don't want to get snow on them so they go to the road an could possibly get hit by a car. That may or may not be paying attention to the road. Also if the roads are bad they can slide all around roads and increase damage!

My child has to walk to school and I don't want him to get hurt. So if my child is hurt, I will be very upset and angry at the schools and may possibly sue
