Muscogee County Schools makes cold weather preparations

(WTVM) - Due to the extreme weather that is expected for the remainder of the week, the Muscogee County School district is making winter weather preparations to keep children out of the deep freeze.

"School administrators are making preparations to open the doors of the school for students at least 30 minutes prior to the start of school and ensure supervision of students in case of early arrivals and to prevent students from being out in the cold," a MCSD media release said on Wednesday.

The media release also says that both school buildings and buses will be properly heated and operational to cater to students. School officials also urge parents to make proper arrangements for students' travel if they walk to school, and make sure students are dressed properly for the frigid temperatures.

The school district also says that parents should continue to check email, phone and media weather reports for updates.

Usually students are not allowed in schools early due to supervision since someone has to be at the school. However, students will be permitted inside if they are early as not to sit in cold.

MCSD also notes that there have not been any delays or cancellations of schools or bus routes due to weather, but they will make announcements if changes occur.
