(NECN: Leslie Gaydos: Fitchburg, Mass.) - Some schools in the region were delaying openings, and parents were getting advice on how to keep their kids safe when it gets this cold. For example, this morning it was -12 in Fitchburg, Mass.
Despite the cold weather, many kids were waiting at school bus stops without hats and, in some cases, without coats.
Parents were being warned to make sure their children were properly dressed before leaving for school because of the danger of frostbite, hypothermia, and other cold-related perils.
