Administration

School Cancellations

Although this winter has been milder than years past, a curiosity persists about how the school district determines whether to keep school open or closed. The decision lies with Superintendent of Schools. The Superintendent takes three factors into consideration. First, the Superintendent consults with the Superintendent of Public Works on the road conditions. Secondly, consideration is given to the weather forecast and lastly, consideration is given to inexperienced drivers on the road and the distance staff members have to travel. The Superintendent of Schools tries to keep schools open and on a regular schedule for the convenience of students and families, but driving conditions and safety ultimately lead to the final decision.
