School Resumes Wednesday, Jan. 8th
OLMSTED FALLS SCHOOL DISTRICT TO RESUME OPERATIONS – ALL SCHOOL BUILDINGS REOPEN WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8TH
Olmsted Falls School District will resume tomorrow (Wednesday, January 8th) and it won’t be without possible transportation challenges. The plan is to have our staff get to the bus garage early so they can begin procedures to get our fleet ready for operation. While we will do our very best to ensure all buses arrive on time to pick up the students taking them, please know diesel engines have issues operating in the extreme cold conditions when they are initially fired up. In short, it takes some time for buses to get their operating engine temperatures to a level where the cold is irrelevant. Also, a delayed start is not an option in our district for several reasons—we provide out of district transportation to parochial schools, we have a ½ day kindergarten program, and so on.
While tomorrow will be much “warmer” than it was today, it will still be cold. Please have students dressed and prepared for the weather conditions accordingly. Thank you.
