Give DCPS & DCPCS Students a Two Hour Delay When There Is Extremely Cold Weather

Destiny Attagba started this petition to Executive Office of The Mayor Muriel Bowser and

DCPS & DCPCS students would like a two hour delay in this case of extreme weather. Most students walk to school, take the bus, or catch the train, and we have to wait in these conditions in order to get to school on time. If we get a two hour delay, then that gives time for the day to warm up, and for conditions to be less extreme when waiting for public transportation. Just this morning, a little after 8:00, it was 13 degrees outside.  At 9:56, the temperature had increased by 8 degrees, putting the area at about 21 degrees. This is still cold, but it's way better to walk to school in 21 degrees rather than 13. Please take this into consideration as many people get sick in this type of weather.
