A Matter Of Opinion

No school today. Really?

I'm a little surprised that so many schools are closed today. As of yesterday, it looked like Spokane Public Schools was set to open. Then Sheriff Knezovich advised against it. Then the overnight snow. Given the problems laid out by Knezovich -- high berms, poor access to buses -- I don't expect schools to open tomorrow either. It's not like those berms will problems will disappear in a day.


UPDATE: Knezovich is now leaving it up to individual districts.
