How the decision is made to cancel or delay school, please see below the procedures followed. 

 - Steve Sura, Transportation Director, is up at 4:00 am to check the weather and possible issues for the day.
 - If there is a possibility we need to cancel or delay:
 - The process begins with people checking roads around the district.
 - Steve talks to other transportation directors, road commission, and law enforcement.
 - Superintendent talks to other area Superintendents.
 - Decision is based on current conditions and predicted conditions. 
 - Conditions include snowfall amounts, visibility (fog or blowing snow), drifted roads, icy roads, and temperature*.
 - If the actual temperature or wind chill is below -20 we cancel.
 -Temperature is taken into consideration because of frostbite potential of students waiting for buses and walking to school.
 - Student safety is always first and foremost in my mind. It is one of the toughest decisions to make as a superintendent.
