As we prepare for the winter season, I would like to once again share some information with you regarding school closings. Our district staff understands that our decision to open or close in bad weather has a big effect on families. We also understand that our students are better served - both academically and socially ␣ by being in school. But as always, our top priority is the safety of our students.
HOW DO WE MAKE OUR DECISION?
Please understand that we make the decision to open or close the schools in bad weather based on a careful analysis of all relevant factors, such as:
Information on road conditions from transportation staff and from the police. We must give careful consideration to the most dangerous roads in the district. Even if your street looks clear, travel elsewhere in the district may be dangerous. Amount of snow and ice accumulated.
