Snow Day Decision Protocol

First, a reminder that the quickest way to receive information regarding a delay or cancellation is to register for our Alert system, for which there is a link on our main webpage or register for the WMFD Alert system by following the links on the WMFD website. 

Our regular routine is day custodian and maintenance personnel begin work at 6:00am and the first buses leave the Transportation Department at 6:15am.
 
When we have inclement weather overnight, in the early morning or being forecast for early morning, Robin Boggs, our Transportation Supervisor and I will drive various roads within our district to assess the road conditions.  Often the roads which cause us the most concerns are the back/side roads and areas that historically are not plowed/treated early in the morning.
 
Our first decision regarding cancellation or delay needs to be made by 6:00am, at the latest.  Robin and I will be in communication regarding the road conditions from 5:15am until the decision is made.  We want to make the decision to delay or cancel as early as is possible (between 5:30-5:45 is our goal). 
 
If we decide on a two hour delay, we will need to determine if we will continue on the delay or cancel by 8:00am, at the latest.  Robin and I will be driving our areas of the district again, prior to our discussing the conditions at 7:15am until we decide what we need to do (between 7:30-7:45 is our goal).
 
Our decisions are made based on the road conditions in our district.  The safety of everyone coming to our buildings (students riding our buses, students / staff driving to school and parents bringing children to school) is our only priority.
 
If you have any questions, please contact my office by phone at 419-884-2132 or by e-mail. 
Mike Ziegelhofer, Superintendent
