Absences Will Be Excused For Students Still Hindered From Attending
Darren Doyle, story:
Edmonson County Schools will operate on a one-hour delay Tuesday, March 7th, according to Supt. of Schools Brian Alexander.
He said that while there are still some power outages throughout the county, the delay gives those who catch the bus in very early hours a chance for full daylight to be out, allowing better sight for safety.
The school system has a list of roads where buses cannot travel, but Alexander said schools will make every provision possible to accommodate them.
"We know this is inconvenient for some families and we want to try our best to better those inconveniences if at all possible," he said. "If you can't make it to school tomorrow, we're going to be very lenient on our excuse policy tomorrow. We also encourage you to call your school if you have specific needs with which we can help you; we want to utilize our Family Resource and Youth Services Centers to help with anything they can."
Alexander said the current list of roads where buses cannot travel includes:
"We feel like going back to school is the best for the majority of students tomorrow, even with a one-hour delay," he said. "Again, we understand there will be some that need assistance or simply can't make it and we will do our best to help you."
As of this afternoon, WRECC reported that there approximately 8,000 customers still without power. According to the outage map, there are still about 2,000 customers in Edmonson County without.
