A reminder to everyone that a 3 hour delay is an option we consider when poor weather conditions are present in our county. This option has been helpful in the past, particularly on days with morning fog. We chose not to use this option today in the hope that tomorrow will permit a full school day for students and staff to implement COVID-19 safety procedures and other changes at the schools to start a new school year. However, if we experience fog again tomorrow morning like we did today, we will go from a 2 hour delay to a 3 hour delay, if necessary, to allow conditions to improve and preserve the school day. We have new bus routes, new bus stops, and new traffic patterns at some of our schools. We want to avoid everyone having to adjust to this while contending with fog. When 3 hour delays occur, school ends one hour later than normal. Bus drivers begin their routes at 6:00 AM, so if we delay or cancel we make the decision by that time. Likewise, after a 2 hour delay, we make the decision to delay further or cancel by 8:00 AM. In a school district as large as ours, road or weather conditions in one part of the county may be different than in another part. As has been our past practice, we will support parents who feel conditions in their location are not safe to send their student(s) to school. Absences in these situations are excused as long as the parent communicates with the school. While not all risks in life can be eliminated, ultimately, the safety of our students and employees is the only thing on our minds as we make weather-related decisions.
In accordance with the JSC eLearning plan, there is no eLearning when school is cancelled on the first day of a grading period. We will review options that may avoid the need to add a day at the end of the school year. Details on this will be announced.
