Extreme cold, piles of snow and sheets of ice have caused Quad Cities area schools
Here’s a look at where some of the districts stand:
- Rock Island-Milan: 5 snow days
- Sherrard: 10 snow days and 4 early dismissal days
- Davenport: 7 snow days, a 2 hour early dismissal and a 2 hour late start
- North Scott: 7 snow says and 4 other late starts/early outs
Working parents told Local 4 News that it’s been hard to arrange childcare, but they’re happy the schools aren’t risking anyone’s safety.
“It’s good that they’re cancelling, you know, as opposed to previous years. You know, either waiting until the last minute or not cancelling at all,” said Davenport parent Chris Bogan. “So that’s a good thing. It is what it is and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
