NLESD Faces Criticism Over School Opening in Metro #nlwx #nltraffic

There was a lot of criticism aimed at the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District over the storm yesterday.

Many schools on the Avalon and in Central were closed, however Metro area schools remained open.

Lucy Warren, the acting associate director of programs and operations says that the board has a meteorologist they consult with and give safety a serious consideration.

There is a process to follow should schools close.

Warren said that after taking all the factors into consideration the board felt as though children could be safely transported to school.
