District shares plan, information for weather-related schedule changes
With a flip of the calendar and a dip in the thermometer, administrators at Ballard County Schools are discussing contingency plans for the upcoming winter. Last year’s weather prompted 18 days that school was not in session, pushing the end of classes by all accounts to the latest date in 36 years.
Last year’s precipitation events were followed by long periods of sub-freezing weather, making the closures last for days after the major highways in the county were cleared. The district decided to try and break the pattern by establishing alternate bus routes that traveled only priority A-C state routes once those major routes are cleared (see map).
