I wanted to provide everyone with an important update regarding the current flooding situation at the school bus yard.
We have been closely monitoring the situation throughout the day, unfortunately, the water in the area of the bus yard is still upwards of three feet deep with a large amount of floating debris. The bus fleet however is dry.
We understand the importance of timely information for planning purposes however we will not be able to make a decision this evening on school opening tomorrow. The area will be assessed in the morning and a decision to open schools will be made at 5 a.m. tomorrow.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Philip D. Thornton, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
