Looks like an eventful weather week is possible for this week. It's been awhile since we've had to use emergency days due to inclement weather, so here is a reminder of how we will communicate a school closing for winter weather. We will use emergency days if the weather causes treacherous road conditions or an unsafe situation for students. I will announce through our "all-call" system, send a text, publish on our webpage, and utilize Facebook. Additionally, we will get the posting out to WSIL Channel 3. I will call off the night before if at all possible so that parents can have more time to make arrangements. I Let's hope for the best this week, but be sure to have some alternate plans ready in the event of wintry weather.
