Walking to school risky in winter weather

I cannot understand why the Altoona Area School District is open when children have to walk through the snow and ice, and some have to walk up slippery hills and stairs.

I have five grandchildren who must walk through that to get to their bus, and today the bus got stuck and was sliding all over the place.

It seems to me this is unsafe for the children. The city should have to clear the sidewalks and streets for the children. After all, it’s the city’s responsibility.
