ingwarm. Thiswinter isproving
to be as difficult as last. While
perhaps not as cold, (although
it is today!) the unpredictability
has been challenging. Please
remember that making the de-
cision to close school involves
a variety of information and we
have to make the best decision
possibleby6:30a.m. InWestern
quickly, ashappened lastFriday.
If that occurs, wewill do every-
thingwe can to ensure students’
safety. In this case, a few buses
actually pulled off the road and
waited for thesnowband topass.
As always, it is your decision to
sendyour child to school. Ifyou
feel it isunsafe,pleasekeepyour
child home and alert the school
to this decision.No childwill be
charged with an illegal absence
in this circumstance.
