Waski: Much planning goes into deciding cancellations
Rick Waski
Inclement weather days have long been part of the culture in the Midwest. The messages that schools are delaying the start to a day, releasing early, or cancelling have been shared for generations by radio and television stations throughout the region. In recent years, automated calls, emails, text messages, and social media have been added to the mix to help us inform families and the community that school hours will be altered in some way.
