Right now it is -22 with windchill! His bus stop is 4 blocks away, my husband is at work and we have no other options besides walking. What would you do? I mean we have to walk the 4 blocks and then stand out there in the cold till the bus gets there.
He hasnt had any sick days yet.
I just posted about this myself yesterday. I really HATE the bus stop thing too. Ours is at the end of our block but I have a 17 month old that I have to put in a stroller & wait at the stop with her up to 1/2 an hour. My DH takes my car & his is a two seater. My DH brings him to the bus stop in the morning but I go & pick him up with my little one. We got stuck in an ice storm in late November & we were both covered with ice. My umbrella blew inside out. Finally a neighbor saw us & told us to come in & wait inside her house but she works full time mostly & I can't do that every time. It just sucks. In fact, if I know were going to get a lot of snow later in the day in the future, I'm keeping my Son home. I can't expose the baby to that. He's in Kindergarten. I know how you feel.

That's entirely your call. You're the mom. It sucks when the schools don't at least do a 2 hr delay on those days. They need to take into consideration the number of kids exposed to the elements & that not all of them have hats, gloves, scarves, etc. I know for my dau, she is on a perfect attendance roll right now. Each month w/ perfect attendance, they get a dress down pass. If she makes it the whole year again (like last year), she gets a gift card to Toys R Us! So if they don't delay tomorrow when they go back, I will just have to bundle her up in layers for her 3-4 block walk to school.
