Cherokee Tribune – Superintendent defends actions by Cherokee system during storm

Cherokee’s school superintendent Thursday defended the school system’s handling of Tuesday’s winter storm emergency and praised teachers and employees for the job they did in keeping all 39,000 students safe.

School Superintendent Frank Petruzielo addressed the decision to dismiss classes two hours early and the frustrations of some parents with the situation that left more than 400 students stranded at schools and 70 students forced to stay through the night.

“As you might imagine, parents have been sharing their thoughts with us. Some are angry, and we certainly understand. Some have shared thanks for heroism showed by our staff, and those are appreciated more than they know,” Petruzielo said.
