Calling school off is never an easy decision. Please be patient and understand that these decisions are difficult to make, taken very seriously, and involve many levels of people helping to determine if conditions are safe for school to be open including the county highway department, the Hanover Community Schools buildings and grounds supervisor, other local school districts, as well as the Superintendent of Schools.
It is important for you to know the process for calling off school. The Hanover Community Schools begin the process as early as 4:00 a.m. when bad weather is expected.
The roads are continually assessed for safety. Buses begin routes at 5:45 a.m. If by 5:45a.m. the roads are favorable and conditions are expected to be good to get the students safely in school, then school remains open.
We try to make informed decisions as quickly as possible. Weather is very unpredictable as you know. Please know that 5:45a.m. is decision making time unless the conditions drastically change. We appreciate your understanding the magnitude of the decision-making process and hope that you understand that it is taken very seriously.
School closings and delays are reported to the media
for announcement as soon as possible.
