Your Opinion: Make-up days offset school closings

Dear Editor:

I read Bob Ratcliff’s letter in which he stated that school closings have reached a level of being irrational and that it might be people are looking for a way of getting out of school and school work.

He overlooks the fact that for every day cancelled for snow, the students must make it up. In reality, the school day is not being cancelled but moved to a day of better weather.

I do not think protecting our children by rescheduling a school day is an insane decision.
