Good Evening Dr. Kizner,

Due to icy weather conditions with snow potential I would suggest to keep the schools closed for the safety of staff and students. Safety goes first!

RE:Public Safety
Thank you for your comment. I agree that safety is my priority. Weather closing decisions are often not easy, but if we feel conditions are unsafe we will look to delay or close. For more information, my winter weather letter is available under "Noteworthy" on our website.

-Dr. Scott Kizner, Superintendent of Schools
