School Closings

The School District of Weyauwega-Fremont wants to inform parents/guardians about how decisions are made and communicated when severe weather arrives. From time to time it may be necessary to close, delay or dismiss school early due to severe weather conditions. The safety of our students is highest priority.

Winter Related Conditions Under Which School May Be Delayed Or Closed

• Snow, ice, fog, severe drifting; both existing and predicted.

• Severe Cold: -20 degrees F temperature threshold and -40 degrees F wind chill threshold. Temperature threshold levels are points at which severe cold will be considered as a factor in closing school in conjunction with other relevant facts and conditions that might be present. Temperature threshold levels are not automatic for school closings. School may or may not be closed because of severe cold upon review of all factors that need to considered in the decision making process to delay and or close school.
