Oklahoma is in the middle of the first snow storm of the school year. Snow, sleet, ice and high winds have really hit our state in full force. Many people wonder why schools are closed at various times of the year due to weather. The bottom line is that the safety of our kids is the most important reason.
It's not always easy for superintendents to know how weather will effect the school, but the safety of the kids in their charge will win out. For additional information about this kind of decision, you can call your superintendent or check on your school's web page for their policy.
When it comes to our kids, we want them to be safe.
