Infinite Campus App Update

Infinite Campus LogoAttention Parents!

Recently there was an update to our Infinite Campus program, which in turn called for an update to the Infinite Campus App that many of you may use to monitor your students homework assignments and grades.  In the past, the app required an alpha code be entered to access your child's information.  With the update, users are now asked to enter the county and state of the school district their child is enrolled in currently.  This information should only need to entered with the initial download of the app.  However, you may be asked to log in with your username and password when using the app.  If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail our District Student Information Systems Coordinator, Kathy Kurtz, at kathy.kurtz@woodford.kyschools.us.

Important Information Regarding Wind Chill Delays and Closings

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.

When the National Weather Service issues a Wind Chill Warning for Woodford County for the time the school day begins, we will make a decision to close schools.  It is quite likely we will make this type of decision on the morning of the day in question as it is hard to predict what the wind chill will be the night before.  If there is a Wind Chill Advisory for the county, schools will likely be open unless there are operational problems with the bus fleet or mechanical problem in the school buildings.  Buildings and the bus fleet are assessed in the morning prior to school by 6:00 am.
