    Snow Closing Policy


    When the Superintendent of Schools believes it is unsafe for children and staff members to be exposed to bad weather or poor driving conditions, schools will be closed.  During the winter months, that decision is made based on whether it is safe for students and staff members to travel on roads, highways and streets. If inclement weather conditions exist, the decision to close schools will be made either prior to the school day or during the school day.


    A decision will be made as soon as school officials can evaluate existing road conditions and projected weather circumstances.  When the decision is made during the evening prior to the day of the closing, the new media will broadcast that information on the 10:00 p.m. television newscasts.


    If the decision is made after 10:00 p.m. the night prior to the day of the closing, the information will be provided to television stations for dissemination by 6:00 a.m.  Whenever a decision has been made, that information will always be given first to the broadcast TV media.  Please use that source by tuning into one of the stations mentioned below for the latest information.
