Schools prepare for winter weather

Winter Storm Warning: School closings, other delays in the Tennessee Valley School and bus cancellations for Tuesday, Jan. 29

The FOX6 Weather Experts say we could see the coldest air in decades - with wind chills potentially dropping to the -50s at times.

The Francis Howell School District tells us it does not have a specific temperature range that would force the cancellation of classes. "It's usually very clear cut".

"For student safety we know within ten minutes or more, exposed skin at those temperatures, that's when you start to see frostbite", said Marquette Area Public Schools Superintendent Bill Saunders.

"The extreme cold poses a lot of issues for our school district", said Superintendent Craig Hockenberry.

Transportation and busing are both factors in Hockenberry's decision.

Lincoln County Schools in Tennessee will be closed Tuesday.

"Stay tuned, and dress for the weather".

The decision to delay or close schools in Indianapolis is generally made by 5 a.m.so that the schools can get word out to families in the district by 6 a.m.

For the third school day in a row, Milwaukee Public Schools will be closed because of the winter weather. There are many different factors that are considered including road conditions, wind chill, projected snowfall accumulations, the confidence of weather forecasts, and the unpredictability of Western New York weather which can vary significantly in a small area, change abruptly, and contradict forecasts. "That's a great place for these kids to be on these cold days".

Kenton County schools have a "MyBusBuddie" parent portal which helps parents track their child's bus route to make sure students don't wait outside in the cold too long.
