Closely Monitoring the Weather February 17, 2022

The CMCSS Operations Department is closely monitoring the weather forecast for this afternoon. At this time, Montgomery County is under a wind advisory but not any significant weather advisories or severe thunderstorm/tornado watches. According to the National Weather Service, our community is split between a slight and enhanced risk for severe weather this afternoon. There is not a recommendation at this time to dismiss early based on the latest forecast. If the conditions change and there is a recommendation to dismiss early, the Communications Department will immediately communicate this information with families. Please know all CMCSS schools have severe weather plans, designated safe areas, and required drills throughout the school year. Additionally, the CMCSS Transportation Department has protocols for severe weather, including rerouting buses to the nearest school in the event of a tornado warning during a route. In 2019, CMCSS was named a StormReady district by the National Weather Service. To receive this distinction, CMCSS: Established a 24-hour warning point and emergency operations center Established more than one way to receive severe weather warnings, forecasts and to alert the public Created a system that monitors weather conditions locally Promoted the importance of public readiness through community seminars Developed a formal hazardous weather plan, which includes training severe weather spotters and holding emergency exercises

Closely Monitoring the Weather Forecast

Good afternoon, CMCSS families, District officials are closely monitoring the weather forecast for tomorrow afternoon and evening. Although forecasters are predicting the potential for freezing rain, there is uncertainty about the timing and impact on travel. Because of the uncertainty, there is no recommendation at this time to close schools tomorrow. However, the Operations Department will continue monitoring the forecast. Please Be Prepared We ask all families to please have a plan in the event that schools are closed or must dismiss early.  A few notes about early school closings: In the event an emergency early school closing is necessary, a communication will be sent to families as soon as the decision is made, explaining the timing of the early closure.  Please ensure you know what time your child’s school dismisses on a regular day as it is used to determine the earlier dismissal time. For example, if your child’s school regularly dismisses at 2:20 p.m. and there is a 3-hour early dismissal, your child’s school will dismiss at 11:20 a.m.  Regular day dismissal times can be found on the following web pages: elementary, middle, high. Additionally, please note the half day dismissal times as these could be used instead. Schools will make every effort to ensure students are provided with both a breakfast and lunch meal. Bus drivers will run their routes based on the adjusted dismissal times.  Please ensure you know what time your child’s bus typically arrives as it is used to determine the earlier arrival time. For example, if your child’s bus usually arrives around 4:15 p.m. and there is a 2-hour early dismissal, your child’s bus will arrive around 2:15 p.m.  Please discuss plans with your children and ensure they know what to do if school dismisses early. Students may be returned to school to […]
