Tough Weather in January

Thank you North Scott Community

February 1, 2019

This has been a trying couple weeks for our families, schools, and community. The frigid weather has gripped much of the country, produced record-breaking lows across the Midwest.

Each day has presented a challenge regarding whether to delay or cancel classes. Please know that our number one priority is the safety of our students, teachers, and staff. Any decision we make is done with them top of mind.

While we know learning has been disrupted this past week due to the frigid weather, we know that your lives have been disrupted, as well. For many of you, a snow day means adjusting your work schedule or scrambling to find daycare. That presents an added burden. Thank you for your patience.

We also want to thank our bus drivers, who have done an exceptional job getting students to and from school safely while dealing with difficult road conditions over the past two weeks.

Finally, although the weather can be unpredictable, we're certain that warmer days are ahead of us. We're eager to get back into a routine. However, that does not mean we are in the clear for the rest of the school year. A cold snap in February or a snowstorm in March could force us to cancel school yet again.

If that happens, we thank you in advance for your patience. We are grateful to serve a community that values the education of its children the way North Scott does.

As of as of now, the last student day will be Friday, June 7. This would change if any more school days are canceled. Graduation will still be Sunday, May 26.
