District 186 schools will be open Wednesday
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
District 186 schools will have school Wednesday despite the cold.
Superintendent Jennifer Gill said they will decide this on a day by day basis. They make sure they take into consideration many things, weather, wind chill, and snow but they do use the hour to hour prediction and they do always reach out to bus companies to make sure they are also good to go.
"It's my hardest decision to have to make, we rather have kids at school than at home but we also want our kids to be safe," Gill said.
A reminder to parents, make sure your kids are staying warm, wearing layers and not standing outside too long.
