Parents of students at Anne Arundel County Public Schools took to Facebook on Monday and Tuesday to voice concerns for their children.

More than 500 comments were left on the AACPS Facebook page as of 9 a.m. Tuesday—mostly by parents complaining about their children being asked to attend school on the coldest day of the year, as temperatures dipped into single digits, with a windchill of -17 in some areas of the county.

Complaints were largely devoted to students having to wait at bus stops in the cold weather and concerns about schools not being kept warm enough.

TELL US: What did you think of the decision? Let us know in the comments.

Hey guess what, My kids made it to and from school with no frostbite. Some of you parents sound like spoiled brats.

Not only did my kids make it to school and back, I had 20 minute duty outside our school, helping kids out of cars and into school. I smiled and so did everyone of them and I did not freeze and either did they.
