WEATHER DELAYS AND SCHOOL CANCELLATIONS
Winter weather is back and with its arrival comes the possibility of needing to cancel school or after school events. The Chippewa Falls Area School District strives to make decisions about cancellations early enough in the morning to meet family needs, and works closely with other districts to make timely decisions about sporting events when weather is threatening into evening hours.
Information about cancellations can be obtained through the following sources:
Television: WKBT, WEAU, WQOW
Radio: WWIB, WOGO, WCFW, WATQ, WISM, WMEQ, WBIZ, WAXX and WAYY
Print Media: Chippewa Herald Times, Eau Claire Leader Telegram
Note: Starting this year announcements will be made on the CFAUSD Facebook page.
The latest high powered doppler radar and all of the high tech computer equipment we have at our disposal today helps tremendously but cannot guarantee what road conditions will be like when a winter storm hits. Decisions made by the CFAUSD are generally based on the ability of buses to transport students safely between home and school settings. During a storm, if parents believe that it is unsafe for their child to be traveling on a day that school is in session, it is their right to keep them home for the day. Just follow standard student absence practices.
