Bryan and College Station public schools and Blinn College campuses will open for classes two hours late Tuesday.

A winter storm approaching the Brazos Valley that could bring freezing rain and snow caused the delayed start. School administrators said they would be monitoring the weather in the morning to determine if more delays or cancellations were necessary.

    So, first, TAMU punishes parents who have kids that can't go to school until late. The TAMU student or employee parent has to come in late because the kid's school has wisely delayed opening. Who cares if the parent has a supervisor who isn't understanding.

    Second, TAMU puts people at risk for a second time, but worse. While this weather warning may not turn out as they think, the last one did and resulted in more than 60 accidents, some of which happened while people were trying to get to work or school at TAMU by 10AM. This time, no closure, no delay, no caution. Why are our high schools and below, Blinn, apparently smarter than the University? Perhaps it doesn't matter much to executives who can work from home or just take a little vacation without a thought. Perhaps it doesn't matter much to those who make enough money to have someone else take their kids to school. Lots of reasons, and none of them make this school look like it is sticking to any kind of Aggie Spirit.

    Those of us who live here and support the town and school and have 20-somethings at school just get to wait until late at night or even morning and see what happens, or make our own decisions to potentially save us from accidents and loss of life. Good thing in B/CS we encourage our young people also to bike or walk to school. Sorry, kids, we didn't know this school wouldn't care about you after they had your money!
