Emergency Early Dismissal Procedures Due to Severe Winter Weather

Dear Parents:

In the event of severe winter weather occurring during the school day, it may be necessary to dismiss the students enrolled at Wauconda Middle School, Matthews Middle School, and Wauconda High School earlier than usual.

The reason this action would be taken is to allow the buses an opportunity to drop off these older students in order to return to take the younger elementary students at Wauconda Grade School, Cotton Creek School, and Robert Crown School home according to their regular dismissal time.

If this early dismissal was not done, we would run the risk of buses being unable to return the Wauconda Grade School, Robert Crown and Cotton Creek students to their homes, or very late drop off for these same students. In addition, we hope to avoid buses driving in a snowstorm when it is dark.

Parents of students in grades six through twelve need to be aware of the possibility that this situation could occur due to inclement winter weather. If it does, we would enact the SchoolMessenger Service in an attempt to notify you that your sixth through twelfth grade student was coming home early.  As a result, we ask that you make appropriate arrangements with your sixth through twelfth grade student in order for them to gain access to shelter after being dismissed early due to weather conditions.  This type of situation does not occur often, but if it does we wanted you to be informed of our actions so that you and your students can be prepared.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Sincerely,
Dr. Daniel J. Coles
Superintendent of Schools

Procedimientos de Emergencia de Despido Temprano Debido a Severo Clima de Invierno

Estimados Padres:

En la eventualidad de un clima severo de invierno durante el día escolar, puede ser necesario despedir a los estudiantes alojados en la escuelas Wauconda Middle School, Matthews Middle School y Wauconda High School más temprano de lo usual.

La razón para que esta acción sea tomada es el permitir a los autobuses la oportunidad de llevar a estos estudiantes mayores a tiempo para volver y llevar a la casa a los estudiantes elementales más jóvenes en las escuelas Wauconda Grade School, Cotton Creek y Robert Crown según su horario de despido regular.

Si este despido temprano no se hace, estaríamos tomándonos el riesgo de que los autobuses no puedan llevar a sus casas a los estudiantes de Wauconda Grade School, Cotton Creek y Robert Crown, o que estos estudiantes lleguen sumamente tarde.  En adición, queremos evitar que hayan autobuses corriendo en una tormenta de nieve cuando ya ha oscurecido.

Los padres de los estudiantes de sexto grado al grado 12 tienen que estar al tanto de la posibilidad de que esta situación pueda ocurrir debido a las condiciones del clima de invierno.  Si ocurre, nosotros no podremos notificarles personalmente que su estudiante de sexto grado al grado 12 va a llegar temprano a la casa.  Como resultado, les solicito que hagan los arreglos apropiados con su estudiante de sexto grado al grado 12 de manera que estos tengan acceso a un lugar donde estar después que hayan sido despedidos temprano debido a las condiciones del clima.  Este tipo de situación no ocurre muy seguido, pero si ocurre, nosotros queremos que ustedes estén informados de nuestras acciones de modo que ustedes y sus estudiantes estén preparados.
 
Gracias por su cooperación.

Sinceramente,
Dr. Daniel J. Coles
Superintendente de Escuelas
