Inclement Weather - Wind Chill


 During the winter months several factors come into play that could delay the start of the school day or cause school to be closed altogether.  One such factor is the wind chill on a given day.  On particularly cold mornings we continuously monitor the National Weather Service and closely monitor the weather conditions.  There are two possible scenarios that come from the National Weather Service; a Wind Chill Advisory and a Wind Chill Warning.  The National Weather Service in Wilmington, OH defines the two as the following:

 Wind Chill Advisory:  Wind chills between -10 and -24 degrees and at least a wind of 10 MPH or more
 Wind Chill Warning:  Wind chills -25 degrees and below with at least a wind of 10 MPH or more

 When the National Weather Service issues a Wind Chill Warning for Campbell County before the school day begins we will make a decision to close schools.  It is quite likely we will make this type of decision on the morning of the day in question as it is hard to predict what the wind chill will be the night before.  If there is a Wind Chill Advisory for the county, schools will likely be open unless there are operational problems with the bus fleet or mechanical problems in the school buildings.  Buildings and the bus fleet are assessed in the morning prior to school by 6:00 AM.
