Short School Days Lead To Frustrated Parents

It was short day of school for many students across the Triad, a scene that has played out many times this year because of weather.

Alamance-Burlington, Davidson, Guilford, Randolph, Stokes, Surry, Winston-salem Forsyth and Yadkin County schools all let out early Monday, as well as Asheboro and Lexington City schools. It made the day short but frustrations long for parents because many of the schools started the day with a delay.

Classes also started late for several school systems because of the bad weather. It caused a lot of inconvenience for parents.

"We don't know what to do, we can't get any games in, we can't play sports, we can't make plans. Everything is crazy," said Guilford County parent, Tina Ray.

"It's been really frustrating for my son, they have gotten behind in their school work. He's actually getting tired of the snow days," said Guilford County parent, Jim Williamson.

Megan Hopkins, another Guilford County parent adds, "How can they learn if they are in school for two hours? They are not learning anything. Plus it is a waste of gas."

Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools sent a letter home to parents to explain their decision.

School districts told WFMY News 2 early release is strictly for the safety of parents and kids.
