Although we clearly considered the Super Bowl as part of our timing, we need to be prepared to utilize the “school opening delay” procedures with the likelihood of a storm that may end early morning or one that poses a challenge during the normal morning commute time.

It has been many years since we practiced the “school opening delay” procedures. The drill on Monday will be a first time experience for most people involved with scheduling and the overall logistics of the process. By exercising a planned delay, we can ensure operations to be seamless when we need to implement it for an actual storm or emergency circumstances.
