Plows were clearing parking lot as parents, busses arrived at Newtown Elementary
A parent of a student at Newtown Elementary School in Mount Pearl was upset with snowclearing operations at her daughter’s school Friday morning.
The parking lot, she said, had had only one or two cuts from a plow 30 minutes prior to opening. (The photo shown above was taken at 10:20 a.m., 25 minutes before the school was to open after a two-hour delayed opening.)
Then, just as school was opening, with buses and parents dropping off students, another plow arrived, the woman said, complicating matters.
“Everybody knew the snow was forecasted,” said the woman, who asked not to be identified. “Surely there could have been a more co-ordinated effort than this. If this lot isn’t a safety issue, I don’t know what is.”
