Mixed reactions for Mishawaka staying open on Wednesday

The only school district where it was business as usual this morning was Mishawaka Schools.

The superintendent says he based the decision on road conditions and temperatures.  School officials felt the roads were mainly fine.

He says Mishawaka schools rarely close and never call for delays because many parents work and sometimes kids are left home alone because of that.  The district wants to provide a safe place to go.

Parents had mixed reactions.  "Yes, it was very upsetting, because every school in this whole area was closed except Mishawaka," said Vanessa Stephens.

Another parent, Janice Janesheski, wasn't bothered by it.    "No we got the kids in and out and everybody got to where they needed to go," said Janesheski.

Janesheski says she has a 26-year-old that went to Mishawaka, and now has a 7-year-old there so she's an old pro at this.  Mishawaka's parents did have the option to keep their kids home, and have it be an excused absence due to the conditions.
