To the Readers' Forum:
At 9:00 Tuesday, Southwestern Drive in the Town of Busti has just cleared itself of the overnight snow. Hopefully all of our children are safe in school.
If so, it is not a result of diligent use of our "snow days"! Our county and town executives or school superintendents read on please. The weather was predicted yet Southwestern School remained open as well as most of the others near Jamestown.
When the school/s have at least one snow day to take by agreement, they have chosen to use it in late spring or summer vs. using it now when it may have saved a life. What is a snow day for?
Why are the main roads not safe? It seems that at least a couple of town/city trucks could have been out, they would have been if this were winter. Why not now? This is not unheard of weather for this time of year, as we have had snow in June.
I would hope that in the future that town, city and school officials would communicate with each other and close schools or plow/salt roads when this situation happens again, as it will.
No excuse to save a snow day for good weather!
