Hanover Community School Corporation : School Closings

  • 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 schools 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 their routes at 5:45 a.m. If by this time the roads are favorable and conditions are expected to be good to get the students safely to school, then school remains open. 

    We try to make informed decisions as quickly as possible. As you know, the weather is very unpredictable. 5:45 a.m. is decision-making time unless the conditions drastically change. We appreciate your understanding of the magnitude of the decision-making process and that it is taken very seriously.
     In the event the wind chill/temperature is in the -20's range, Hanover Community School Corporation will delay school for two hours, allowing time for the sun to come up and raise the temperature. If the temperature/wind chill does not improve, school will be canceled for the day.

    School closings and delays are reported to the media
    for announcement as soon as possible.
