It's also a matter of the southern states not having the equipment to deal with ice and snow. Plows and sand trucks aren't really worth investing in down there. When we lived in TX, we had an ice storm and there was maybe an inch of ice on the ground. They canceled school for two days and I couldn't believe they were such wimps until I tried to drive to tthe grocery store and had to slide back home because there was NO salt or sand on the roads. They just had to wait until it melted.

Good point.

Cat_Alley, I am in central NJ and have plenty of resoures; I just have a mental block with this driving to HS beause it might shorten my day if I have to rush back at 2;15. I do not want to give up subbing jobs

When I said resources, I meant public transportation, friends to carpool with, etc.

Maybe an answer will come about before the bad weather.

If you are in NJ, don't worry about it. SHe will walk and live and I am sure she will meet up with students on her way. We live 4 blocks to the HS, and it is a parade past our house every day. Many in the morning but tons in the afternoon, when most parents are at work.

Chimi I haven't read through all the suggestions yet, so forgive me if I'm late with this. But is there a closer middle school or elementary school to your house that she could ride from the high school and get off at and then walk the rest of the way? I know ODD had a few friends that lived just in a neighborhood across the street from the junior high and they had the option of walking over to it and taking that bus to the h/s.

Again, late in this response, but I wish our library was open like that. ODD would have some after school club meetings at times and needed to sit around and wait for me to pick her up as we live quite outside of town and she couldn't get a ride home as a freshman and sophomore. I suggested the library, but for whatever reason, they close up the library as soon as school ends each day, and hte only way to go into the library at lunch time is to go in and get a pass out of lunch. I often wonder if they are trying to actually make it harder for the kids to use our school libraries.
