School Closing Decisions Hinge On Afternoon, As Well As Morning, Conditions


The decision to close schools in Springfield can have as much to do with the forecast for the afternoon as it does with the predicted weather conditions in the morning. 

 

District 186 has cancelled classes on four different days this month, primarily for extreme cold and dangerous wind chills.  Interim superintendent Bob Hill says one factor he looks at is whether conditions will still be dangerous in the afternoon… since there is a greater chance of a child being stranded outside after they get off the bus at the end of the day, compared to getting on the bus in the morning. 

 

[Classes will resume in District 186 on Tuesday.  For other school closing information, check wmay.com.]
