Adverse Weather Schedule

When adverse weather conditions make it advisable, school closings will be announced over KKAN/KQMA radio (92.5 FM or 1490 AM). Late starts will also be announced over the radio station. Closings and late starts will also go out on our Panther Alerts system sponsored by First National Bank and Trust. To sign up for this service, go to our school web site at It is a good policy for parents to tune in to the radio any morning that looks snowy or icy to find out if school will be delayed or canceled. At no time will school breakfast be served when school starts later than the usual 8:00 A.M.
