Cold Weather Cancellations, How Parents Respond
CINCINNATI (Tiffany Wilson) -- Five calamity days gone and it's not even February.
Monday, Cincinnati Public Schools called off because of the severe, dangerous cold and they've cancelled them for Tuesday as well. So how do the parents feel about all these snow days?
When we spoke with Janet Walsh of CPS Monday morning, she said it was a difficult decision to call of school but they really considered the 6 thousand walkers.
"When your skin can get frost bite in five or ten minutes I think it's very wise."
Annon Haury's daughter is in full day kindergarten at Cincinnati Country Day. They haven't missed any days and when asked how that makes her feel:
"It makes me happy because I think kids need to be outside and keep going. There's plenty of places around the country where it's cold like this all the time and they can't cancel school all the time for coldness."
On the other hand, Alana Plesner's second grader didn't have class Monday.
"I know that some students rely on the bus and they have to be out in the cold, and my concern is if they don't have adequate warm clothes that can be bad for them and I think that safe is better than kids getting frostbite."
