Officials discuss factors to cancel school
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
With school about to start up again, some are wondering if there will be delays or even cancellations due to the weather.
District 186 said they cannot speculate about cancellations but it would also take a number of factors about the weather into consideration.
In Waverly, the schools also base cancellation on the weather as well as student safety.
"Possibly delaying school is the extreme temperatures in the morning, you always think that even though it might only be five or 10 percent of our student body that may walk, I'm still thinking of that five or 10 percent, you know every student's safety is our concern here," Superintendent of Waverly Schools Dustin Day said.
Schools remind parents to check with their student's school to see if they are closing.
