Statement from South Bend schools on not delaying school


"SBCSC recognizes that the decision to close schools due to inclement weather is often controversial and rarely pleases everyone.  Because of the complications of our transportation system, SBCSC is either open or closed, and does not delay the start time or dismiss early.  When there is going to be a closure, we do our best to make the decision as early as possible so families who need to make alternate plans for their children have ample opportunity to do so. Recess in held indoors when the temperature is 20 degrees or below, or the wind child is below 10 degrees.  Our school buses have a GPS system so parents are able to track the movement of their child's bus on a personal computer or smart phone.  This is designed to reduce the outdoor wait time, and provide the exact location of the bus if it is late in the afternoon."
