Bertie County Schools Superintendent Chip Zullinger said he wasn't taking any chances when he decided to cancel school for the day.
Although most of the ice had melted and turned to mud by the afternoon, Zullinger said superintendents take a big risk if they send children to school when the roads are filled with ice. He says he would rather be cautious and prevent a potential disaster.
This was the third day of school missed for county students due to weather. Zullinger says those days are expected to be added on to the school year.
