Severe Weather and School Closings


Severe Weather and School Closings

A message from Dr. Claire Martin.........

A question that many people ask me – especially during the cold winter months is, "How cold does it have to be in order to close school?" Although there really is no "hard and fast" rule, the general standard/guideline that the Chilton Public Schools follow for school closings due to severe cold and wind chills is: -20 degrees temperature, and/or with sustained wind chills of -35 and below. There needs to be some point at which this decision is made.
