Insight on Education
By Superintendent Janet L. Meeks
“A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.” ~ Carl Reiner
Breckinridge County has finally experienced winter temperatures and precipitation for Winter 2016, causing our first school closings of the year. Depending on the timing of inclement weather, it is sometimes very difficult to make decisions on delays and cancellations. Regardless of the timing, great effort is put into making these decisions.
Whenever inclement weather causes concerns, district personnel travel roads throughout the county long before any school bus is ready to begin a route. Each individual reports the condition of the roads to determine whether or not school is a viable option for the day. A decision is made as early as possible so that parents can make necessary arrangements. The first two places to obtain school closings are our local radio station, WXBC 104.3, and our Weather Hotline (270)756-3125. The next method used to disseminate information is through our Notify Me email/text alert system. If you want up-to-date information on school closings and all other school events, please go to your child’s school website and register for Notify Me.
Sometimes snow is not the issue; sometimes it is simply the extreme temperatures. In the event the National Weather Service issues a Wind Chill Advisory, we will consider whether or not a delay would help stall for time in order for temperatures to improve. If there will be little or no impact on the temperatures during a delay, then school will be in session at regular time. During the days when temperatures are very low, please wait with your child at the bus stop or try to bring your child to school. If the National Weather Service issues a Wind Chill Warning, all Breckinridge County Schools will be closed.
Hopefully, this information will help you as we prepare for cooler temperatures and inclement weather. Additionally, if your children are in need of gloves, toboggans, or coats at any point during the next few months, please contact the school’s Family Resource Center/Youth Service Center, and we will do everything we can to assist. As always, thank you for your help and support! Have a safe and enjoyable winter!
