Winter Weather Survey
The Drexel R-IV School District is asking for your input in consideration of implementing a 2 Hour Late Start option in the case of inclement winter weather. If inclement weather strikes late at night and clears by early morning, it is possible that school could start two hours late to allow road crews to clear roads and to permit the first bus routes to operate in the daylight. Under this scenario there would be no AM or PM preschool, no breakfast would be served and school would dismiss at the regularly scheduled times in the afternoon. The district is also aware of the difficulties that this could cause some families in being able to get their children to school. Thank you for your input. It is greatly appreciated.
The purpose of this endeavor is to support the Drexel R-IV School District in its educational programs, activities, and graduates with their post-graduate pursuits by providing a tax-exempt organization which serves as recipient and protector of all donations.
