I assume you meant "our" and not "are". Of course thats not to be confused with "hour", which is an element of time. Oh, and we cant forget about "your" which is possessive like "our", but not "you're" which is a conjunctive verb meaning "you are".

I called the school upset this morning and she gave me the following number to call: 4 five 8 ~ Seven 4 seven 1. I hope you all call and voice your opinions as well.

I work at the school and have kids who go to UC. Did not have any problems getting there or back home. One less snow day to make up this spring!

Thats the problem...you're part of the problem. Did it ever occur to you to think about the people who live on the back UNPASSABLE roads? My son's bus got stuck in the snow about a month ago and had to be pulled out, you would think they would learn their lesson. All surrounding schools were closed and they put all the children's lives at stake because it's "one less snow day to make up this spring".

At 6 this morning, we had maybe a 1/4 inch of snow. You would have called school off? Why? Because we MIGHT get up to 6 inches? When school let out, we had 1 1/2 inches at best. If you had your way, we will be making up snow days in July.

Keep in mind that the rest of us have jobs. One of us has to tell our boss we aren't coming in today. It costs us money when they call off school.

My guess is that if they would have called off school today, there would be 10 times more people complaining on here.

Well, guess what? We got more than an inch. I also work full-time and feel the pain of snow days. I guess I would rather be safe than sorry. && your probably right about people being on here bitchin if they would have called off school. Can't please everyone.

I'm with you- I work FT too- and we definitely had more than 1 1/2 in by the time they cancelled- more like 4-5 and the back roads were NOT good- & yes, it would have made sense to at least delay yesterday morning to see what might transpire- but when I left for work- it was starting to really come down and continued on. It's buses to consider with a lot of kids, inexperienced teens driving, etc. I respect using cautious judgement to not "jump the gun" like some schools- Franklin Co. closes at the drop of 1 snowflake- but- Union Co. seems to just want to risk it for the sake of not having to make up a day- and in my opinion over the years there have been many bad calls.

Not one child has been hurt in a Bus accident due to snow. We got 3 inches total in Union County and to delay school because it might snow is absurd. We a raising a nation of babies. Your Grandpa would laugh in your face for wanting to close school for that little snow. Summer break is short enough now the way it is, if we cancel snow every time it might snow, we will be going to school year round.....a completly different subject.

I think your way of thinking is absurd. As we all know, living in town only consists of a few blocks. 3 inches is a lot when you live out in the country. Our road in particular becomes un-passable to any vehicle with snow at this amount. The salt trucks don't even bother hitting the back roads until after the storm has passed. We live in a new day, so we can't compare what "Grandpa" used to do to this generation. If you're so worried about doing what your Grandpa used to do, then I expect that you make your children walk for miles to school too right? We are not raising a nation of babies, but rather protecting what matters most to us...our children. You really should step outside of your little box and see the big picture. Small towns led to small minded people like you.

We got a TOTAL of 3 inches yesterday and that was by 8 last night. Three inches in town is three inches in the country until the wind picks up and makes drifts. There was no wind yesterday and like I said, at 3:30 when school gets out, we only had about an inch and 3/4 to 2 inches. If you can't drive thru two inches of snow, then stay home. The buses had NO TROUBLE yesterday at all. You are making a mountain out of a mole hill. And yes, you are helping to turn our kids into gaint cry babies...bitching about not closing school because it is snowing. Cry baby!

Well, you just stick to Grandpa's ways and we will stick to our ways. Good luck with that LOL and u are wrong about the amount of snow (big surprise). It stopped snowing around 2:00 pm with a total of 3 inches on the ground for the children to travel in. I am done with your closed minded thinking.

Maybe where you live but definitely not where I live- but again, I agree with the other poster- you think what you want. You also remind me of someone that might have their precious summer baseball league or teacher's summertime off cramped if god forbid your kids have to go a day extra. Talk about pampering your kids- sounds like you're one that is doing that- hate to see when your kids might get exposed to the adult world where there are no guaranteed summers off, spring breaks, etc. Believe me, you're furthest from the truth if you think I'm one who thinks our kids need anymore coddling or babying in this world - there's already enough parents who do that now, never making their kids responsible or accountable for their actions.

I can't believe what I am reading.

To the people who wrote...“think about the people who live on the back UNPASSABLE roads” and “Our road in particular becomes un-passable to any vehicle with snow at this amount.”
My question for you is, if you know your road is bad in the winter and you aren't able to deal with it, then why in the world do you continue to live there?

To the people who wrote....“they are idiots putting all are children at risk” and “bus got stuck in the snow about a month ago and had to be pulled out”.
Gosh people, if you don't feel it's safe for your child to ride the bus to school that day, THEN DON'T SEND THEM or take them yourself if you feel that is safer.

If you have an inexperienced teen driver you shouldn't let them drive in good or bad weather by themselves anyway.

WHY DO YOU EXPECT THE GOVERNMENT TO TAKE CARE OF YOU AND MAKE YOUR DECISIONS FOR YOU!

Someone said....“Small towns led to small minded people like you.” Maybe people with small minds are better able to make decisions on their own and don't expect others to do it for them.

If you live in rural Indiana you can't always expect to be able to make it in from your homes in the winter. That is why Woodruffs parking lot is full before an expected snow storm.

I swear, if the government shut down tomorrow some of you on here posting and your children wouldn't be able to survive.

So you’re saying that the government makes the decision to close the schools? The government has nothing to do with making decisions for the school. && for your information I did NOT send my child to school during the storm. I have control over my decisions. Also, I work for the government so I do believe I could survive without them LOL!
