When is the decision made?
It is our goal to make the decision as close to 6:00 am as possible. A 6:00 am announcement could be:
All schools are closed for the day; or
Some schools (either individually or by family) are closed for the day; or
All schools are delayed in opening by 2 hours; or
All schools are open, but some or all busses are not operating for the day; or
All schools are open but students will be dismissed early. Bussed students will be picked up 2 hours earlier than their regular dismissal time and walking students will be dismissed at their regularly scheduled lunch hour.
