2 Hour Delay: October 31, 2018

Dear District 49 Families,
 
Cold, wet and snowy weather began moving into our area this evening and will likely continue through much of the night into Wednesday morning. Due to these conditions, District 49 is on a two-hour delay for Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2018. Falcon High School will be on an E-learning day schedule.
District 49 leaders are seeing wet roads that could get slushy and icy as we anticipate cold temperatures overnight. We anticipate roads will be slick around 5:00 a.m. when buses would normally start taking to the roads.
 
A two-hour delay will improve safety for students and staff, and give city and county crews more time to manage roads. A delay will also allow our facilities team members to prepare all our locations to minimize potentially dangerous conditions. 
 
We will continue to keep a close eye on the weather into the early morning hours in case conditions do not improve and a closure is required. Stay tuned for any updates on d49.org and our social media channels.
