This should be a topic of concern for all residents in the Village, especially parents. How can the administration believe that it is acceptable to allow students and faculty to commute in these conditions? Especially when every other school in the area is canceled for the day. I believe it was 2 or 3 weeks ago that the district canceled School on a Thursday night in anticipation of poor weather the following day, however the bad weather never arrived. Where is the consistancy? I hope students that were held home by their parents are not punished for their absence due to the administration's neglegence!

Dolgeville School has bigger issues that they're dealing with. Christine Reynolds needs to be ousted!

I can't say that I disagree with your statement. I'm assuming that you are refering to the suspicious departure of former Athletic Director/Teacher/Coach Connolly? Who has put the students in more immediate danger, Connolly or Reynolds? I personally would rather have my child playing a school sport for a coach without a bulls*** coaching certificate than riding on a bus in a snowstorm with a woodchuck bus driver. It's all about the children right?

I think it is odd that we worry about teachers driving to school in poor weather but we don't worry about everyone else that has to drive to their job during snowstorms.
It is also very unprofessional for school employees to make remarks on facebook about having to actually work today instead of having a snow day.
Maybe we should not have a mid winter break and instead use the days one at a time so we can make sure nobody complains when it is snowing and we have school.
I believe we may put more people at risk when we do have a snow day.The high school students with drivers license are out driving around.Parents take their kids shopping or to the ski slope.Buses are driving slow,are well marked and safe.
It is not a perfect world and even the professionals cannot predit the weather.Mrs Reynolds is doing her best to serve the taxpayers,students and employees.

"Think about it" Your argument might be valid if every other school in Herkimer and Oneida county were not closed. School should've been closed today. Mrs Reynolds continues to a use her power to make poor judgements period.

since when did 6 to 8 inches of snow become a snow storm? its simple!! go to school during the summer and take the winter off.

Most people my generation think 6 to 8 inches of snow as a dusting. People are turning soft.

roads were not that bad.if you drive according to road conditions there isnt a problem. i didnt see why they would cancel school.they also get a road report from all the highway supers in the district so thats how decissions are made.i also think mrs reynolds has done a great job with the school.i think you are just sour grapes.

Once again, if every other school within 30 miles was closed, not to mention many other non-school related businesses and organizations, DCS should've also been closed. Unless there is some kind of bubble that protects Dolgeville, Salisbury and Stratford from the nasty weather happening throughout the rest of the region, close the school in the best interest and safety of the students and faculty. Regardless, of record there were no accidents or injuries as a result of the school and afterschool activites carrying on as usual yesterday. Perhaps administration will take into account parent's and other resident's concerns next time there are similar conditions.

As long as they don't occur the week leeding up to the sacred play of course...

Most bars and dollar stores don't close due to bad weather, so I can understand your negligence about this topic.

And since there is not an icon in the "Judge it!" menu that depicts moron, un-educated or just plain stupid, I will not judge your posts as I'm sure you are the one that is judging mine.

I think the dollar store sells dictionaries if you want to learn how to spell leading or are you too high class to shop there? I did not have time to check if the bars were open yesterday as I worked a 14 hour day.I guess you must be more familiar with the bar schedule than I am.

Hahaha! You clearly have no valid argument; therefore you concentrate on one (1) misspelled word in one of my posts. I could spell check and correct grammatical errors on here all day! Including your posts, which are missing spaces after periods. I do not feel that I am “too high class” for dollar stores however I do not shop at them because the majority of the merchandise and products that make their way into those stores are either junk or out-dated.

I think I do have a valid argument.If you noticed,everyone got to school safe.Maybe the other schools should have stayed open.Maybe people should put snow tires on their vehicles so they can drive safely in the winter.Perhaps we should make students ride the bus to school instead of letting them drive.
By the way,I do not like spaces after periods.LMAO Too funny!

So just because no one was injured that makes everything alright? Would it seriously take for someone to get injured for you to come to your senses that the school should be closed in those conditions? And just because you don’t like spaces after periods does not make it right, much like your whole argument on this topic.
