ACBOE Inclement Weather Plan

Extreme temperatures and wind chills are expected to be present on Thursday and Friday. We currently anticipate normal school hours and buses to operate on their regular schedule. Changes will be communicated as necessary to ensure the health and safety of our students.

Autauga County Schools are making the following adjustments at this time:

➢ Heating units will operate throughout the night to ensure the warmth of all buildings
➢ Students will be allowed to enter the buildings immediately upon arrival with appropriate supervision
➢ Bus drivers will attend to buses earlier than the regularly scheduled times to ensure they are operational and warm
➢ Mechanics will be available to assist with any issues on routes
➢ Bus drivers will anticipate students waiting inside; however, we request that students be watching and waiting for their bus to arrive

We recommend that students dress warmly and in layers. Parents should consider transporting students who normally walk during these times of inclement weather. As a reminder, if a student arrives late or remains home at any time, they are required to be checked in or bring a written excuse from home that is signed by the student's parent or guardian within three (3) days following the students' return to school as provided in the Autauga County School System Code of Conduct.

Thank you for your continued support and cooperation as we provide the safest environment for the students and staff of Autauga County Schools.

Spence Agee, Superintendent
