On The Lookout For School Delays

We are watching for any issues for kids heading to school Tuesday after a handful of problems were reported Monday.

Southwest High School in Jacksonville will be open on a normal schedule Tuesday. The Jacksonville Daily News says power went out at the end of the day there Monday.

The Elizabeth City-Pasquotank County School site says school should be on a normal schedule for Northside Elementary in Elizabeth City after heating problems sent students home early Monday.

A few Pitt County Schools reported hearing issues, though the Daily Reflector says those have been fixed. Some Problems with buses though, could persist while the weather stays this cold.

    You know what? I hate kids. That's why I think that they should have to walk barefooted in the snow to school. I couldn't care less if their feet are bleeding in the snow, leaving a trail of blood from their house to their school, because it builds character. I think that school should be from 6 to 4, and that they should have school on Saturdays. Well, mom's telling me to get off the computer because I have work in a couple of hours, but I still think that children are pests.

    Well said Rob. Get a grip people. Grab a sweater and those dusty old mittens. And let the kids be kids and quit turning 'em into a bunch of pansy wimps.

    O how did this country ever make it. A cold bus, whoopdy doo! If a child learns about a little hardship and how to deal with that hardship he/she will know how to overcome many problems later in life. Complaining about the cold? This is the continued sissyfication of America. Quit treating your kids like babies and allow them to grow.

    Don't you think it is awfully cold for the small children to be awaiting a bus as early as 6:00 am. Some buses are coming late and children are standing to the road for hours. Sadly, many parents work and can't wait out the late bus. The buses are also freezing.

    Kids riding buses will not hurt a thing, children used to have to walk miles in the snow to school. Cold air is normal and should not stop an entire state.

    The hearing problems were things like the intercoms...some people i know in high school said the intercoms were messing up

    The area is not use to these teens and twenties. Schools should start maybe an hour or two later during this time of artic air. It is a shame with kids being picked up between 6 and 6:30 and its still in the teens at this time. Believe me---its cold on those buses with the doors opening constantly!!
