RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Today was a day of starts and stops for school districts across Central Virginia. Most districts were opened today, but during the midst of transporting students for the start of the day, a huge snow storm blew into town.
That forced many to shut down early, or take kids back home in the middle of their routes. It made for a difficult situation for everyone across the board.
Shawn Smith, a spokesman for Chesterfield County schools, joined NBC12 to address the situation. See the video at right for the full interview.
Q: This storm really caused quite a bit of confusion in Chesterfield. Some schools open, some closed, some shut down early. What advice can you give a parent that is concerned about what this day means for their child's instruction?
Q: How will this impact the rest of the school year?
Q: We have taken calls from angry parents all day, I am sure whatever we've received it has to be double for you. What can you say to these parents, upset with the way the district handled this situation?
