Delays possible

Opinion

Delays possible

Stormy weather is upon us. For the last several years, we have canceled school for the entire day when conditions clearly warranted such action.

This year we also plan to consider the option of a one- or two-hour delayed start, which simply means that the bus pick-up schedule will be pushed back an hour or two to allow for road conditions to improve and school facilities to be made safely accessible. Late start and/or no school announcements will be on the local TV and radio stations. Generally, the first notification of school cancellation or a delayed start will be posted on the home page of our Web site: www.falmouthschools.org.

Please take the time now to create your contingency plan for both possibilities. Safety is our No. 1 concern, and you can be assured that we will do everything within our power to make decisions that are in the best safety interests of our students and staff.
