FOX28 Weather Alert

Schools closing following heavy weekend snow


Officials at several local school districts are already closing school in response to heavy snow fall in Michiana.  More school closings could follow.

FOX28 talked to officials at both Elkhart Community Schools and Penn-Harris-Madison Schools on Friday. Both districts say there is no hard and fast rule for what temperature will lead them to delay or cancel school.

Elkhart says they take the temperature and wind chill into account, along with snowfall and snow drifts that could impact students who walk to school. PHM says few students walk, but they do keep an eye on road conditions that could delay bus pick-up.

Remember, you can get the latest closings and delays on You can also sign-up to get the latest closings and delays delivered right to your cell phone (standard text messaging and data rates will apply). Closings or delays will also air on FOX28 News at 10 and the FOX28 Morning Show on Monday morning.
