District leaders weigh options for school after storm

(Toledo News Now) -

It's on the minds of every parent and student in the area: Will there be school tomorrow? The answer isn't always easy.

Superintendents in the area say days like Thursday are always difficult to call because it's not clear what the roads will look like.

After the Tuesday night-Wednesday morning snow storm, the area saw major improvements to roads as crews plowed away, but district officials have to consider all roads that parents, students and bus drivers will use.

"Buses stop, students have to cross to get on the bus – can that vehicle stop in time to make sure that student can cross safely?" said Perrysburg Superintendent Tom Hosler. "There's going to be some roads that are clear, and some that aren't, and it comes down to, you know, how quickly can buses and students get in and out of those bad areas and get to a good area."

All schools in our area have exceeded the number of calamity days allowed by the state - Perrysburg Schools are at nine days, Northwood is at 10 – but school officials say that does not play a role in their decision-making process.

"I'm not going to make it a different decision now than I would have made earlier in the year," said Northwood Superintendent Greg Clark. "I'm fairly confident we'll have plenty of warm days this spring, and if it ends up being into June and that's what we have to do, then that's what we'll do."
