Many parents were upset with the decision to open schools in Lewiston, Auburn, Poland and Turner, saying the snow made the morning trip scary and unsafe. Auburn Superintendent Katy Grondin agreed, saying the snow never tapered off as forecasts suggested. Grondin told the "Sun Journal" that she should have called off school yesterday, but made the decision with the information she had at the time. Many parents said the open schools should have erred on the side of caution rather than take chances with their children's safety.
