The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning from 10:00 AM Wednesday to 10 AM Thursday. This communication is intended to provide our families enough notice to plan and prepare.
As you know, Wednesday is our virtual learning day. Our virtual Wednesday instructional schedules will remain the same as already planned. If you are a parent with a child in a nonpublic school or program, please know that our Transportation Department has been in communication with the school and/or program. WSSD will provide transportation in accordance with the schedule of the school or program.
As for Thursday, meteorologists expect that we will have substantial snow accumulation and high winds into Thursday morning. If their forecast is correct and these conditions do materialize, Thursday, 12/17, will be a good old-fashioned snow day. This means no school for our students including those enrolled in the Online Academy. The snow day is already built into our school calendar, and we believe it will be a welcome break for all. The thought of a snow day is still magical – even in a world with COVID.
I will be listening to the latest forecasts and watching for snowflakes and will communicate with you by Wednesday evening.
Please stay safe and warm.
Very truly yours, Lisa Palmer, Superintendent of Schools
