Complete lack of respect for the safety of the parents and kids at MVRCS. The State Board of Education should bring them up on charges of child endangerment. More grandstanding by this school to try and prove how good they are. In my eyes, with this decision, they just proved how stupid and ignorant they really are.

Little correction Lynette, one snow day added on to two days from Sandy earlier in the year. We're up to three, and have a way to go before Spring. Again, bad call. Even late into the night, it was clear the snow was starting later in the day. There was no reason to call the whole day. Its too bad Malden Public didn't make it a half-day. Say what you want about Charter, in the end, they made the right call.

No they didn't make the right call at all. Not when the Governor of the State is requesting that all vehicles be off the road by Noon time. When every other school in the State from grammar schools, high schools, to colleges and trade schools etc. close. What are they trying to prove by being the only school open? As I said in my prior post. Complete lack of respect for it's students, parents, and faculty. Grandstanding is all that school cares about.

That is your opinion,you have a right to it. My opinion, bad call. Hopefully, there won't be too many more!

Thank God no lil kid was hit by an automobile then this would have been a whole different story. In a major storm you don't send your child out in harms way. It's STOOOOPID !
