We're finally seeing a decrease in the number of kids catching swine flu. With windchills between -10 and -20 tomorrow, and so many students already sick from being in the cold on tuesday to get to school, nothing should be done to risk students's health. Please follow your fellow nothwest arkansas schools's examples and cancel school tomorrow.

The 8th is projected to have a high of 8 and low as far as -15. THIS IS UNHEALTHY regardless of the ice and mayhem. MOST people in this area do not have the clothing nor the MONEY to buy said clothing for these temps. These TEMPS are dangerously LOW- I cannot believe that you all are choosing to have children venture INTO this weather because you dont want to use up a snow day. THIS is just insane. I would rather extend the year by a few days than have my children (AND MY LIFE) jeopardized. Crossing Guards are expected to stand for 1/2 hour in this weather. And yet do not have insurance offered or anything like that...
