FAIRFIELD - As temperatures remained in the teens and single digits Wednesday, parents across southwestern Connecticut bundled up their children to get them to and from school.

Health officials say the chances of getting frostbite are very high in the winter, especially when the temperature is below freezing.

Fairfield police are urging parents to keep their children safe and warm. They are asking that parents dress their kids in bright colors so drivers can easily spot them behind piled snow banks.
