WHAT A WEEK! I HOPE IT HAPPENS AGAIN!
Superintendent Wayne Weber
As I write this article, we are just finishing the coldest stretch of weather ever recorded in Wisconsin! It’s hard to believe that even Wisconsinites found weather too unbearable to be outside. As a district, we cancelled four days of school in the past two weeks. I don’t recall that happening before during my time in the district. As I stated in an article last year, every reasonable effort is made to continue the operation of our schools during adverse weather conditions. However, consideration for the safety of our students is our primary concern, and the closing of schools can be expected when severe weather conditions occur. I don’t think anyone could argue that we just experienced the most severe of weather conditions.
