Baltimore County Schools Open 2 Hours Late

Light snow and cold temperatures combine to delay opening.

A light snowfall overnight and the coldest temperatures of the winter so far have combined to delay the opening of Baltimore County Schools Thursday.

School officials announced the two-hour delay on the Baltimore County Public Schools website early Thursday morning.

when I went to high school in the 70's not only did our buss operate on dirt/ mud roads but did so in the snow and yes, it sometimes got stuck. Remedy? we older male students got off grabbed the bumper and pushed! There was often a case we got to school covered in mud but we got there and to my knowledge not a one of us ever got hurt!

Again, school bus drivers when I was in grade school had little issue with a tiny bit of snow. I'm also pretty confident they had rear wheel drive buses too. I'm not talking about 4-5 inches of snow overnight - I would completely understand with a school delay or closure if needed for that.

Michael unfortunately, gone are the days when people look to work through problems, it seems. Today its all about suing someone else for money you don't deserve. It doesn't just apply to the poor/abusers of welfare. As Evets notes above, it exists in all rungs of American society. It's a disease that I can only hope someday gets cured.

Tim et al, Good Comments from all. Tim is so right to say the County (Gov and BCPS) has been run with no forethought in mind. We live in a society that kicks the proverbial tin can down the street, instead of dealing with the issues. The BCPS issues and comments that are being written lately on PATCH, shows there is a major disconnect between BCPS and the community. We need to have 'United" themes, Dundalk United, Towson United, to get our voices heard by BCPS. There is more going on here than just frustration by parents over the BCPS schools opening 2 hours late...
