School district prepared for upcoming winter season

-A A +A

If conditions are obvious the night before that the weather will not allow for school the next day, then school officials will make the cancellation call that night by 9 p.m. Often this is not the case, so district transportation staff begin checking the roads at 3:30 a.m. the next morning. School officials also make contact with local road crews, as well as the police department, to pinpoint local trouble areas.
By 5:30 a.m. a decision is made. A One Call Now phone message, media, (local, Lexington and Louisville), which includes approximately 10 different radio/T.V. stations and the school website will carry the message. There will also be a message on the Central Office information line, (692-3721, ext. 411).
If inclement weather comes in while school is already in session, school officials will make a decision based on what is deemed safe for students and will contact parents via One Call Now. We will also contact the numerous media outlets and post this on the MCPS website. If you are not currently receiving the One Call or would like to be removed from the list, please contact the board of education office at (270) 692-3721.
If school officials can’t cancel by 9 p.m. the evening before, it will be decided by 5:30 a.m. that morning.
