This morning, the water cooler talk among parents was about what time their child's school district sent a robocall to their house informing them that schools would be closed because of the blizzard-like conditions.
Many suburban parents got the call late last night, some close midnight. Other parents, like those in Buffalo City Schools, got the robocall around 5:30 a.m. even though the school district had actually decided to close schools between 11 pm and midnight the night before.
Some suburban parents complained that they were irritated to get a call so late into the evening from their school districts. While some city parents were irritated that the Buffalo school district waited to inform parents until early the next morning.
In an ideal world, everyone would get the call at a more reasonable hour, say 8 p.m. or so. But that doesn't typically happen because no school district wants to be ridiculed for closing schools over doom-and-gloom forecasts that prove to be totally wrong.
So, assuming you're going to be inconvenienced one way or another, which would you prefer? Take our poll and let us know!
