SALISBURY, Md.- Frigid temperatures are having a tight grip on Delmarva and some students who walk to school are not happy about it.

As buses pulled out of the parking lot from Bennett Middle School, a neighbor to Bennett High in Salisbury, students like Cameron Ewell were making their way to class on foot.

With temperatures in the teens, Cameron wasted no time.

"It's cold, but it's alright; it's the usual because I walk to school every day,” Ewell said.

Kamel Jones and Samantha Bernard, both sophomores at Bennett High, braved the chilly walk to school. Both dressed in layers to keep warm on their 10-minute walk, but for Jones it did not help much.

" It is freezing cold - really cold, I don't want to be walking to school," Jones said.

 “I have a long sleeve shirt under here, and then I have my jacket, then my ear muffs," said Bernard, who pointed to each article of clothing.

When the temperatures drop, health experts recommend layering up, but paying close attention to clothing hazards like hood strings and scarves on small children.

Experts say kids lose more water though their breath in dry winter air, so hydration is critical. Keep an eye out for signs of frostbite as well.

Bernard said she is just ready for warmer weather.

" I'm so really for this winter to be over, Bernard said. “I want some hot weather, some 70 degrees, 80 degrees," she said.
