Its that US Culture - which says that if a child injures themselves at school, due to ice or snow, the school will get sued. So, Head Teachers panic & send kids home rather than take the chance.

Ironically, the conditions were probably better at normal school leaving time on both Thursday & Friday, than at the time, they were sent home ealy !!

Sorry Alan , but you are wrong.........I know what you are refering to,(the sue happy climate) but thats not the culture in Schools here.
We have snow anywhere from 5 to 7 months, the only time School is cancelled is if the driving conditions are too bad. Could you imagine the chaos if the schools were closed for all that time.

It must be really difficult to get home at a time when there's no snow left!

Ours were sent home at midday yesterday - by which time, the snow had melted away!

Wassa matter with the kids today ?

I can remember, as a little lad, in the 1950's, walking to school with the snow coming over the top of me wellies !

We'd all sit round the teacher whilst she sucked a Murray-Mint and exhaled now and then, just to give us a bit of heat !

Bare feet? You were lucky.....we used to dream of going to school in bare feet but we were too poor to have our own feet!
