Snow Event Offers Important Lessons

Last Friday's surprise snowfall and windstorm was challenging and difficult for everyone. Despite a 2:30 early dismissal, busses were delayed as late as 5:15 and the ride home for children was far later. With power out at both Salford Hills and the District Office, communicating with parents was seemingly difficult, if not impossible. There were many heroes that day, not withstanding our bus drivers and our students who were patient, resilient, and courageous. Know that the district is exploring options which would provide alternative communication tools at the building level, better informing parents of situations which may arise if the power goes out. We're hopeful that these new resources and procedures will be implemented soon.



We thank everyone for your patience and understanding.
