Public Information Statement
Issued: 6:30 AM EST Nov. 14, 2018 – National Weather Service

This week is winter weather preparedness week in Indiana.

Today we will look at winter weather safety for schools. Is your
school weather-ready?

The Indiana department of education plans provide for as safe an
environment as possible for school children. Most school systems
have several sources for weather information including NOAA Weather
Radio, local radio and television and internet or paging services.

Schools have a plan for delaying, early dismissal or cancelling
school, based on forecast or observed weather and Road conditions.
Weather watches usually prompt discussion of plans. Actual
conditions or winter weather warnings or winter weather advisories
will usually prompt delays, early closures or cancellations.
Temperature, snow, freezing rain or Road conditions determine a
school's course of action.

Local radio and television stations carry information on school
closings or delays, as well as planned closings or delays for other
organizations. Often school officials will test Road conditions
before making decisions.

Most schools have Mobile communications for bus drivers, and
announce to teachers and students at school, any plans differing
from normal. School officials and bus drivers are in communication
if weather or Road conditions require an alternate Route of travel.
School officials and bus drivers are also aware of the signs of
hypothermia or frostbite in case children have to wait a long time
at bus stops. Many schools have automated phone messaging or texting
ability to inform you of changes in busing or school activities.

So monitoring weather forecasts and school plans, through the media,
or school web sites, phone or text message services, will keep you
updated on school plans.

Drivers are advised to be especially cautious when traveling through
neighborhoods or near bus stops and schools. Falling snow or dense
fog can make it difficult to see children heading to or from school,
especially during dark hours before and after school.

On Thursday, we will review having safety plans and how you can be
prepared.
