Wind Chill Advisory/Warning Protocol Updated

Cold Weather Delay/Closing Guidelines

If the National Weather Service issues a wind chill ADVISORY that would be in effect at the start of the school day, there may be a two –hour delay. The time the advisory is issued may affect the decision to delay school. The closer the advisory is made to the start of the school day, the district will consider other factors in making the decision.

If the National Weather Service issues a wind chill WARNING in effect at the start of the day, there may be a 2-hour late start. However, if the wind chill warning will not be lifted by 10:30am there will be no school that day. The time the warning is issued may affect the decision to delay school. The closer the warning is made to the start of the school day, the district will consider other factors in making the decision.

The district will make the official announcement of a school delay or closing through the automated calling system, social media, and other media sources. The protocol for wind chill advisory and warning is intended to provide a guideline but it does not replace the responsibility of the district to make the best decision for the most students and families.
