Inclement Weather Information Logo

Unpredictable winter weather may necessitate Boone County Schools to alter daily schedules or routines within the district.  To be prepared please make sure your child’s school has up-to-date phone numbers and emergency contacts for your family.  Also, have child-care arrangements already in place should the need arise to close school early, delay or cancel school.

Boone County Schools have a great team working tirelessly to make decisions on closing or delaying school, always keeping the safety of our students as the top priority.  As early as 3:00 a.m., if snow, freezing rain, sleet or other dangerous precipitation presents our Director of Transportation and Assistant Superintendent for Operations set out to inspect the road conditions. They drive designated routes, checking the roadways that are typically the most dangerous when snow covered.  The team considers safe travel not only on streets but sidewalks, parking lots, and  driveways.  Other conditions to consider include the outside temperature, wind chill factor and the amount of precipitation fallen or falling. The Assistant Superintendent for Operations contacts the county public works department to check on road clearing progress.  Once enough information is gathered and shared with the Superintendent the team focuses on one question:  Would you feel safe transporting students in a school bus in the current or predicted conditions?
