Springfield Schools Field Complaints From Parents About Icy Morning Commute

It’s a much improved morning across Central Illinois… good news for drivers, pedestrians, and schoolkids… who hopefully won’t have to wait outside for half-an-hour or more for their buses.


That was pretty typical during Monday’s ice storm, prompting lots of complaints from parents. Interim Springfield school superintendent Bob Hill says in retrospect, he wishes he had called off classes on Monday.


But Hill says the decision had to be made by 5:30am… and at that time, no one knew how bad it would be by 7, when buses started rolling.


District officials say they will investigate ways to better notify families if buses are running late because of the weather.
