Tri-Creek School Corp. tries to maximize the fewest of school hours. Every chance Tri-Creek gets to delay the start of school, it does. This is not in the best interest of the students the system is to serve.
What are working parents to do? Miss work and disadvantage their employers, or leave the child home alone? When the school does not make wise choices for the children, parents must.
On. Dec. 11, Tri-Creek called a two-hour delay because of extreme weather. There was negligible snow on the road.
The next morning, Tri-Creek called a two-hour delay because of extreme weather, and the forecast cold was here, but there was no appreciable warming during the two-hour delay.
The delays are not for the children’s safety but for school employees’ convenience. That inconveniences parents and their employers.
Serve the students, not yourselves.
