Students never truly know how school districts make the decision to cancel school due to bad weather conditions.

School Superintendents have a meeting with professional weather workers to determine if the weather will be bad enough to cancel or have school continue , they only have until 5:00 a.m. to make a decision so they can alert bus drivers, teachers and school workers (Janitors , lunch aides, nurses etc.)

Busing students also plays a role.

Wichita Public Schools was quoted saying “we have schools that open at 7, 8 and 9 with buses driving all those routes on a tiered system. With a district the size that we are, it is difficult to make those accommodations compared to smaller districts.”

If the roads are dangerous but its not to cold they’ll make it possible for you to get to school as safe as possible.
