The NWSD has changed the practice for inclement weather days. Effective Monday January 16, 2023 if a rural bus route is cancelled for inclement weather, it will no longer be a full day cancellation. If a bus is cancelled in the morning, it is expected that it will operate in the afternoon to bring any students home that may have gone to school that day. Buses will run after school unless temperatures remain below the threshold of -40 or -45 with the windchill or existing hazardous road conditions persist.
This change is being made to help support students and families.
The Severe Weather Administrative Procedure, which outlines the acceptable conditions for weather cancellation, is located here
The Parent Handbook for Bus Families has been updated to reflect this change. The updated handbook is located on our website here
