What are your thoughts on schools releasing early due to severe weather? Limestone County Schools released early today even though the severe weather doesn't appear like it will be in North Alabama until 5 PM. Do you think schools should let out early or do you think they should shelter at the school?

I do believe most schools are considered storm shelters correct? So if it is safe enough to be declared a storm shelter, why is it not safe enough for students to stay in during severe weather?

One of the biggest hot button topics in TalkWeather history. There are compelling arguments to be made on both sides.

Keep in mind rural bus routes in many of these areas. School may dismiss at 3:15pm but it may be 5pm or later before the route is finished, then the driver has to get home safely.
