“Although I understand why the school made that decision, I wish we felt more listened to. In this situation, how would you feel as a Brockton student if the school dismissed concerns about your safety? Most Brockton schools did not have school, but we did. I am NOT disappointed by their final decision not to have a snow day, but I AM disappointed that the school missed an opportunity to listen to us and care about our concerns.” — Oreoluwa
