January 6, 2014
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Thank you for your understanding during our two hour delay this morning. We will be DELAYING tomorrow morning, TUESDAY, January 7, 2014, for TWO HOURS as we did today.
As you can imagine our operational systems are not engineered for subzero temperatures. The late start gives us time to check conditions at our schools. A couple of hours of sunshine and radiant heat helps both inside and outside our buildings. The delay also keeps us consistent with our neighboring school districts.
I realize that our decision impacts everyone in the district. We do our best to keep the delays and closings at a minimum; but we feel that tomorrow’s delay is warranted.
Dr. Dee O. Fowler
Superintendent of Education
