    I was wrong, the school system made the correct call this time. I jumped to an early conclusion and I was wrong.

    Bill-KCS makes the children their first priority. Don't know where you live in Knoxville or whether you have kids-but in my area it is sleeting and the roads are already icy. I am glad to have my kids home safely, despite the inconvenience to me.

    The chicken little syndrom is at work again with the school system and the local weather people don't help any.

    The school system jumping to conclusions again, they don't take working parents into consideration at all.
