CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
With a winter storm warning in effect for
Friday, how do school districts decide whether or not to stay open?
There's several factors that go into the
decision to cancel school or not, and it's certainly an important one with
close to 15 thousand students throughout the Kenton County school district.
"If you're still a kid at heart, you
always want a snow day," says Amanda Bandura.
But canceling school is no easy call. Kenton
County schools superintendent Terri Cox-Cruey says she tends to err on the side
of caution if she knows there's a good amount of precipitation headed this way.
"It's going to be very difficult tomorrow
because we may be forced to make a call based on what the forecast is and not
necessarily what's in front of us at the moment," explains Cox-Cruey.
Kenton County has close to 170 routes from
north to south, and Cox-Cruey says the decision becomes even trickier when it's
dry in the morning, but the forecast calls for snow in the afternoon.
"Black ice. I mean, you don't see it, you
hit a slick spot and you're done and there's so many precautions you need to
take," says Bandura.
Amanda Bandura says if there's a good amount
of snow or ice, it's not worth risking the life of any child.
"Even if it's just one, you don't want
that one, I just wouldn't risk it," adds Bandura.
Kenton County is allowed five snow days a
year. Make up days are required if there's any more. Cox-Cruey says to make
the best judgment call, they have extra crews working those
"We actually have individuals with
trucks that go out in the north end of the county and the south end of our
county so that they're able to give me first hand information," says Cox-Cruey.
says to help with the decision, she also bounces ideas off of different
superintendents throughout Northern Kentucky. She says often times parents
complain that the conditions in their part of town aren't that bad, but it's
important to remember they have to consider the entire county.
