I don't see your point Bridge. The bus service and schools are separate entities each with their own decision to make as to how they operate under the circumstances. Considering that the news updates were only 15 minutes apart (hardly significant in the grand scheme of things) I think that they all did a good job in keeping us informed. We have a duty to ensure (in whatever way they travel) that our kids get to school safely every day of the week - not just when it snows. The schools quite clearly said that if you did not feel that you could get your child to school safely then that is fine. Bring them in when conditions are better. What did you expect - a chauffer driven 4 x 4 to come by and pick them up for you instead? Well done Eductaion for finally giving the schools the responsibility of deciding for themselves whether conditions in and around are safe for people to attend. It makes so much more sense than a knee-jerk pan island response. Schools are open, snow has stopped and all will be back to normal by lunchtime!
