Although schools remain open during winter weather events, bus service may sometimes be cancelled for the day if road conditions are considered too dangerous due to snow or icy conditions. Announcements regarding bus delays or cancellations are made via local radio stations on the affected day. Students are not expected to wait for a school bus for longer than 15 minutes past the scheduled pick up time. If the school bus has not arrived by that time, students should return home. The decision to keep a student home for the day due to weather, shall be made by the parent or guardian.
