I think that's a bit harsh Bridge and don't really understand what your point is. The buses have to make their own commercial decision and the schools theirs. There was only a 15 minute difference in the announcements which is hardly significant in the grand scheme of things. I had a text message from school yesterday afternoon to confirm that decision would be made by would be made at 7.15am to update parents and not only did BBC Guernsey confirm the announcement at about 7.20am but I also had another text from the school at that time as well. We have a duty to make sure our kids get to school safely every day of the week not just when it snows - whether that's by letting them go on the school's bus service or taking them there yourself (if they are too young or too far away to get there under their own steam). If you didn't feel that your child could get to school safely then you were very welcome not to send them until you felt you could. I say well done to Education for finally allowing each school to determine for themselves whether it is safe on and around the premises or not. School is open, the snow is melting and all will be back to normal by lunchtime.
