Some parents want school closed on frigid Wednesday

FREELAND, MI (WNEM) -

After two days of brutal cold, some local school districts are opting to hold class on a day when our temperatures will crack the double-digits.

That decision has some parents upset due to the still Arctic-like conditions outside and poor secondary road situation.

WNEM TV5 spoke with parents who have children in the Freeland School District. That district had been closed on Monday and Tuesday, after getting nearly a dozen inches of snowfall followed by frigid temperatures and wind chills below negative 30.

The school district superintendent told TV5 that he deemed it safe for kids to go to school. 

Many of the parents TV5 spoke with were fine with the decision, but some say the roads are in bad shape and the temperatures too cold.

WNEM TV5 wants to know what you think -- if your school district didn't close on Wednesday, should it have? Sound off in our comments section below and vote in our poll.
