MANCHESTER- Manchester's superintendent of schools sent a letter to parents Thursday explaining her decision to open school on-time despite a messy morning commute. The letter came after parents called to complain about how bad the conditions were on their drive to school.
It was a wet heavy snow that came down hard just in time for the morning commute. Superintendent Debra Livingston says she followed protocol and made the decision before 5:30am, and at the time it seemed like the right decision, but Mother Nature had other plans.
Parents say they got stuck on hills and their cars slid around. Livingston sent out an apology, she says she did get some positive feedback that could help future decisions.
"I'll go back to the protocol, I think it's always good to review and see if there's something else or listen to some of the suggestions that we've had today about considering another option or two," Livingston said.
Part of the protocol involved discussion with other school districts. All of the surrounding towns made the same call. Only Hooksett reversed their decision and ended up having a delay.
