Indiana weather can be unpredictable. From time to time, it may cause us to call for a delay, early dismissal, eLearning day, or even a closure. Here are the factors we consider in the decision-making process and some helpful resources for caregivers and students.
WHAT FACTORS DO WE CONSIDER WHEN MAKING THE CALL TO DELAY OR CANCEL SCHOOL?
The safety of our students and staff is always our primary consideration. School is one of the safest places to be even when the weather is bad:
There is no formula for the amount of snow, ice, sleet, wind, or low temperatures necessary to cause a delay, early dismissal, or cancellation.
Whenever there's a forecast of winter weather, a team of district administrators hits the road before 5:00am to assess. They compare notes, watch developments, and consult with local authorities on road conditions. We strive to make a decision and communicate with parents by 5:45am.
Remaining open and on time is often the best decision for families:
The timing of delays and closures can be tricky because the weather changes fast and forecasts can be wrong.
We rarely make the call to delay or cancel school at night. Most often, we do so in the morning. That gives our team the chance to make the most accurate assessment possible.
