The big, fat snowflakes that fell last week remind us that there could be some school "snow days" or delays in the near future.

 

Julianne Repman with the Bend La Pine School District says although they have only closed school for snow about six times in the past 20 years, there is a plan in place.  "We track weather systems pretty regularly. We actually get up on any day we may think we have inclement weather. We actually have folks out there in their own vehicles from the transportation department, driving the bus routes to find out how cars are handling the conditions. Once we determine a school delay or closure, then we actually start a phone chain, which includes contacting media, up dating our web page. We get our social media out there we let folks know through Twitter, Facebook, those types of outlets, what's going on."

 

Repman says anyone can also sign up for a "text" message about any closure or emergency.

 

The Bend La Pine Schools website has all the information and snow day phone numbers. (541-323-7669 / or 541-323-snow).
