Previously, the National Weather Service (NWS) issued a wind chill warning that extended until noon on Jan. 31. They have reevaluated the expiration time for that warning and moved that up to 10:00 a.m. instead of noon. While earlier than first forecast, it is still too late in the day for us to call a two-hour delay, and a three-hour delay simply is not practical. Please see the closings and other announcements as listed below:

•All Verona Area Schools will be CLOSED on Thursday. January 31st. This includes Early Childhood and Pre-K.
  
•All elementary and middle school after-school / evening activities are cancelled for Thursday, January 31st.

•In-season high school sports practices may be held; attendance for participants is optional. Coaches will be sending out details to the athletes and their families.

•The High School Course Information Fair scheduled from 6 – 8 p.m. is postponed until Monday, February 11 from 6:00 –8:00 p.m. in the Preforming Arts Center.

•The Science and Engineering Fair scheduled from 6 – 8 p.m. is postponed until a later date.


The safety of your children is always our number one concern and focus. Decisions regarding delays / cancellations are in alignment with that focus. As in all cases and at all times, families make the final decision whether to send their children to school or not. If no school delay or cancellation is issued and you believe the conditions are too dangerous for your child (road conditions and / or low temperatures), then we absolutely will honor your choice to keep them home and that will not count against your child’s attendance record. If you choose to keep your child at home, then please do call your school as you normally would to report your child’s absence. You can click here for our weather policy that was shared with families in the Fall and in the two previous notices sent out this week.

Thank you!
