Superintendent’s Message

School Closings

To Close or Not to Close Schools?

 

That is a tough question for a school superintendent. Is there a right answer? Not necessarily, but hopefully, there is a best answer. There are numerous concerns that must be taken into consideration when making “the call”.

How long will students have to wait outside for a bus?

Is there a good chance the buses could be delayed?

With almost 70% of our district receiving free and reduced meals, how many of our students will go without a warm meal if school is cancelled?

If we dismiss early, how many parents will be able to arrive home before the bus drops their children off?

With approximately 400 student drivers, are we confident they are capable enough to drive on slick roads?

What chance is there that the weather will get worse after students arrive at school?

Will school buildings be warmer and safer than residential homes?

What percentage of roads have to be considered unsafe before the entire district is closed?

What time of day or evening is best to make the call to parents?

How will school closure effect parents’ rescheduling of work or child care?

Is it better to close one school as opposed to all schools?

All these questions must receive strong consideration before a final decision is made. However, the final process in making the decision focuses on what is in the best interest and ultimate safety of our students. When a decision is made to close schools, there will always be disagreement and some frustration. Yet, we will always chose to err on the side of caution in regards to our students. We know that when we all arrive the following day with no tragedies or complete disruption of services, our students win and we are ready to tackle another day of learning.
