Inclement Weather Procedures
Delaying the start of school or cancelling school due to inclement weather is never an easy decision. The decision to delay and/or close school is always based on the safety of students and staff. Several weather conditions are considered when deciding whether or not to delay/close school. Some of these conditions include:
- Road conditions
- Weather forecast
- Temperature and wind chill
- Current amount of snow and projected snowfall amounts
- Conditions of school parking lots and sidewalks
In addition to the Connect5 messaging system, school delays and cancellations will be announced on the following stations:
Radio: WFRO (Eagle 99) and Clear Channel local stations
Television: WTOL Channel 11, WTVG Channel 13 and WNWO Channel 24
Announcements will be made as early as possible but this may not always be possible due to the timing of the storms or conditions. Again, the safety of our children is a top priority and road and weather conditions are checked thoroughly before a decision is made to delay/cancel or keep schools open for a particular day.
