ATTLEBORO - Cars lined up outside the A. Irvin Studley elementary
school in Attleboro today, where students waited eagerly to get out one hour early due to the snow.
Some parents felt the same.
"You don't know how the streets are going to be soon...
everybody's concerned about the black ice... I mean I would rather have my
child home with me," said Amiee Wood while she was waiting for her daughter.
But for others, rearranging schedules for the early
dismissal felt more like a burden... on a day they say the weather didn't seem too severe.
"Snow's not bad and it's only 2 o'clock and they would have
gotten out of here in another hour so, I don't think it's really worth it," said father John McKenzie.
"It's not that bad at all... I don't understand it," said Pat Ross while she was waiting outside the school "In my message it was drivers who don't have
experience... nice. Inexperienced drivers. Probably the school buses."
Still there were some parents out today who said they
preferred coming to pick up their kids early if there was any chance
conditions could have been unsafe later on.
"It's weather, you can't predict it, you're in New England, you
never know either way which way it's going to go," said Blayne Dalton. "I'd rather be
safe than sorry."
All Attleboro public schools were dismissed an hour early today.
