Lansing CSD Closed Friday, Jan. 5 due to weather



Dear Families,

Lansing Schools will be closing tomorrow, Friday, January 5, 2018 due to the extreme windchill warning and snow squalls.  

Our leadership team along with our transportation, food service, and buildings and grounds supervisors reviewed the potential hazards related to the windchill warning.  Our decision is based on our uncertainty regarding heat, power outages, and transportation coupled with potential cold weather risk factors such as frostbite.  We will be reviewing our building and busing conditions throughout the day on Friday to assess their functioning ability in such extreme temperatures.

There are local resources available to you if you are having heat related concerns in your homes.  If you need assistance navigating these resources, please contact your child's school building principal or school counselor and we will gladly support you.

COMMUNICATION

Our main source of mass communication is School Messenger.  Key to its success is having up-to-date accurate information.  Please inform the appropriate school building if you need to make changes to your email and/or phone numbers.  We also notify local radio, TV stations and websites such as WHCU.  Our district website, Facebook page and Twitter accounts are also sources for information.
