1. I am a crossing guard. On days when busses are cancelled alot of kids end up walking to school. I have seen kids that are falling down on ice covered sidewalks , the roads quite often have been salted and the kids in the busses would probably be safer than the ones walking. Other areas I have worked have had no kids on no bus days yet I had to drive on bad roads almost having an accident myself.
    One teacher told me that on bad days teachers are suppose to go to the nearest school to them not neccessarily the one they teach at. That way there are teachers to watch over the kids that may show up. The idea is that alot of teachers may be able to walk to a school and not have to drive.
