When we monitor road conditions during bad weather events, safety is our first consideration. We are currently experiencing changing road conditions due to the snow/sleet that began falling around noon today. As a result, WISD will release at 2:30 pm today, January 6, 2017.
By releasing students early, we allow our bus drivers to have maximum visibility to avoid problem areas on the road – especially on rural bridges and overpasses. In addition, an early release gives our high school students the opportunity to drive before road conditions worsen.
Buses will run their usual routes. Parents of bus riders should expect their children home approximately 1 hour earlier than normal.
Our maintenance department is currently treating sidewalks and campus entrances. Parents are advised to use caution in school parking lots and on all campus sidewalks.
All after school activities, including Kids Unite and athletic practices, are also cancelled due to extremely low temperatures and potential precipitation.
We are beginning to monitor weather changes that may occur tomorrow because there are currently several weather models that show the potential for snow or snow flurries. While we don’t expect that we’ll need to alter tomorrow’s school schedule, we do know it will be extremely cold and windy.
Your safety will always be our top priority when we are faced with decisions about school closings due to weather. Below is our process for determining school closings or early dismissals.
The following factors are considered when we make a decision that alters the normal school schedule:
• Information on road conditions and whether buses/cars can safely travel
• The existing accumulation of snow or ice
• The rate and expected duration of precipitation
• Parking lot and sidewalk conditions
• Weather predictions
When changes to the normal school schedule occur, use our SchoolMessenger system to notify families by call, email, and text. We will also post information on our website, Facebook and Twitter accounts, and notify local TV and radio stations.
