It's 4 a.m. on a snowy weekday morning. Most students are still sleeping. Many have gone to bed the night before anticipating an early morning phone call from Superintendent Jeff Brown announcing yet another all-day closure. The thrill of snow days is an experience all generations can relate to.
How all-day school closures or two-hour delays are decided and communicated requires more than just a phone call. A small task force of district employees including transportation, maintenance, communications, building administration and the superintendent work in conjunction with one another to make this happen.
