1/3 Washington County Schools Watching for Monday Morning Temps

Classes are being held today at schools throughout Washington County even with the mercury level coming in at around 5 below zero with wind chills at about ten below. However, School officials will keep an eye on the temperature for Monday morning as they get ready for the start of class. The wind will be whipping Monday, adding an extra bite to air temperatures expected to reach a high that’s going to be well below zero. That means it could be dangerous for the young students to be outside for even a couple of minutes. A lot of districts don't have a set temperature that makes the decision for them. But in West Bend according to School Superintendent Ted Neitzke, a sustained wind chill of around 20 -below tends to be their benchmark. Neitzke told WBKV / WBWI  News that they'll make the call Sunday night at about eight at the earliest. If it is cancelled, parents will be notified by the district with an automated phone call to your home. WBKV / WBWI will announce any school closings sent to us by the proper authorities on Monday morning.
