& School Cancellations
Winter is around the corner and thoughts of “snow days” begin to enter our minds. In most cases, the decision to call school off is usually made after driving the roads, conferencing with the local road officials, and talking with area school leaders. Calling school off for the day is a difficult decision and one that is not taken lightly.
When weather threatens the safe operation of our buses and there is need to cancel school for the day, almost all area radio stations and television channels, including Channels 4, 5, 9, 41 and 62 carry USD 416 school closing information. Also if you have signed up for WILDCAT ALERTS, you will receive a text. Sometimes, when the call is made to cancel school, the stations/or channels do not always get the information broadcasted in a timely manner. This is regrettable, but we will do everything that we can to be sure all parents are notified in a timely manner.
