Have you ever wondered how school districts decide whether or not they should cancel school due to inclement weather? It's actually a highly technical process involving multiple decision points leading up to a final decision.

However, the exact process has always remained shrouded in mystery - UNTIL NOW.

We've managed to gain exclusive access to the confidential, top secret flowchart every school district across the nation uses in these difficult situations. Maybe. Okay, probably not because we just made it up, but whatever. We're sharing it with the general public for the first time ever.

YOU ARE WELCOME.

(You'll need to click it to make it large enough to read. It's a very complicated chart. Or you can view it as a .pdf, if that's more your thing. We're not here to tell you how to live.)
