Why did the schools close early, since the snow was not predicted to start until the evening? Seems like a waste of valuable, needed education time. And do half days cancelled not have to be made up at the end of the regular school year?

Some forecasts were calling for the snow to begin as early as 3pm, although not picking up in intensity until evening. In order to help planning by parents, the decision was made very early this morning, before 6am, using the forecasts available at that time. I'm okay with conservative decisions when the safety of the students is at stake. And no, early dismissal days do not need to be made up.
