Parent Fall Break Survey

We want to hear from you!

There are numerous implications with both keeping or not keeping fall break in the calendar.  The purpose of this survey is NOT to survey all of the different possible scenarios keeping or eliminating a fall break could potentially mean to the development of the 18-19 calendar recommendation.  Rather, the purpose is to get a general idea to what extent our parents want to keep or not keep fall break in the calendar.  Your individual responses will not be shared with the committee.  Only the overall results will be shared.  If you have already responded via the parent email that was sent, no need to complete survey again as your response has been recorded.  Thank you.

Important Information Regarding Wind Chill Delays and Closings Snowy Fence

How Does the Wind Chill Affect School Being Delayed or Closed?

During the winter months several factors come into play that could delay the start of school or cause school to be  closed all together. One such factor is the wind chill on a given day. On particularly cold mornings we continuously monitor the National Weather Service and closely monitor the weather conditions. There are two possible scenarios that come from the National Weather Service: a Wind Chill Advisory and a Wind Chill Warning. The National Weather Service in Louisville, KY defines the two as the following:

  • Wind Chill Advisory: Wind Chills between -10 and -24 degrees and at least a wind of 10 MPH or more.
  • Wind Chill Warning: Wind Chills -25 degrees and below with at least a wind of 10 MPH or more.
