A message from Mr. Patrick Waddell, Superintendent of Edmonson County Schools:
Edmonson County Schools will be open and running on a one-hour delay for Wednesday, February 25, 2015. As you are certainly aware, the region experienced historic snowfall and frigid weather last week. Our State and County Road Departments have done a tremendous job of clearing our roads during this time.
Unfortunately, our school district’s Transportation Department continues to experience problems with slick and/or inaccessible bus turnarounds on several roads throughout the county. Edmonson County Schools’ Bus Drivers and Maintenance employees have been monitoring the condition of roadways (especially areas with turnarounds) on a daily basis and will check critical areas again late this afternoon. Today’s sun and slightly-warmer temperatures have led to some clearing, but there are still turnarounds that will impact bus routes on Wednesday morning. Bus Drivers who serve families along these impacted routes will attempt to make contact with them between 5:00 P.M. and 9:00 P.M. tonight so that alternative pick-up and drop-off points may be arranged.
Edmonson County Schools request your assistance during the remainder of this week as we work to resume school. Our plans at this time are to operate on a normal schedule for Thursday and Friday of this week (weather-permitting).
