Do we have to stay in school for an extra hour because of the three hour delay? And is it true that if we are called off of school today, we will have to make up two days next week? I've been hearing all these things and want to know for sure if they are true or not.

Thanks!

On a 2 hour delay buses can't start untill 8:00 so on a three the buses cna't start until 9:00. Do the math, what time will students get to school if their bus route is 3 or more hours?

Does anyone know what time they will start sending busses out? The temp is still 28 degrees.

Okay I was just wondering. Because last year if we would've been on a 3 hr delay, we wouldn't have gotten out until 4. So I was just wondering if they had changed that or something. Thank you.

They will get out at the same time as usual.

What time would the children get out of school on the 3 hour delay?

If they cancel it then parents will complain about a make up day--everyone remember the Saturday the kids had to make up time on last year? I say its a good decision to make it 3 hours, the kids can go on to school and not have to make up time

Make-up day would be next Monday and we all hate Monday mornings.

I didn't check the answering machine this morning so my children were up and ready before we knew of the delay.

They should probably just cancel it, it is the only thing that will ensure safety to all and our road is complete ice, if it doesn't start melting soon and the temperature doesn't go up then my children will not be in school today.

I think they are just doing their best to get enough of a day in to not have to make it up...I can appreciate that!!

I'm just taking my kids back home. I brought them to work with me this morning. I am glad they are being pro-active with the ice threat, but if it is going to take more than 2 hours I think they should just call it off.

The 11 hour being half a day isn't correct now that we are on the extended day this year. At our school it is 11:45.

We got a 2nd call which also says that it is now a 3 hour delay. Due to conditions beyond their control. It said once the sun came out that the temps would rise quickly and the ice would melt fast.
