KINGWOOD — When below zero temperatures kept Preston County students at home recently, they had a Brain Freeze.

Brain Freeze is the brain child of Preston School Superintendent Steve Wotring, and he is ecstatic about the reception it got.

Brain Freeze provides digital or hard copy activities to students at all grade levels.

Employees reported on a two-hour delay on Brain Freeze days, and teachers were available 10 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m. to answer emailed questions from students and parents.

Schools were open for students to use libraries and computer labs. High school students could use their community school rather than come to Kingwood.

Bus drivers did training, and cooks prepared meals.

“Then we started getting feedback from parents, we started getting feedback from kids, we started getting feedback from staff, and it was 95 percent good,” Wotring said.
