Knowing that there was a potential for fog on the Lower Shore this morning, Wicomico transportation staff began looking at conditions throughout Wicomico County at 4 a.m. At 5:15 a.m., when a decision had to be made on whether to delay the start of school, conditions were fairly clear throughout Wicomico, so no delay was recommended. (Had there been a delay, ParentLink calls to Wicomico school families would have been made around 5:30 a.m.) Buses were already on the road and some students and many staff were already on their way to school when the fog set in after 6 a.m. Based on the early morning weather conditions, there was no fog delay this morning for public schools in Wicomico, Worcester or Somerset.
Dear Mr. Fredericksen,
This morning you made a huge mistake and risked the lives of not only the children in Wicomico County but the drivers and teachers as well.
I know I can be quite vocal with Salisbury News but really, you can't be serious in your above message. The conditions had to be some of the worst I have ever seen here on the Shore, especially this year.
Obviously our Post this morning left quite an impact on your Office or you wouldn't have published the above information. That being said, shame on you and all of those involved in making such a horrible decision. (Stop watching WBOC and look out the window for once, they're not always right, you know)
Being that I am as vocal as I am, speaking for myself, of course, I do not believe your decision had nothing to do with today's testing. I think it had everything to do with it and again, the idea you even went public with such a statement seals my impression on this matter.
But hey, your in charge, right. Your accountable to no one, right. As we used to say in professional pool, "You Can't Beat Luck." Lucky no one was hurt today.
