Superintendent of Seaman Schools, Dr. Steve Noble, makes the final decision regarding snow days. Dr. Noble checks weather maps, forecasts, and also works with district staff members to check the roads, district sidewalks, and parking lots. Dr. Noble also discusses the possibility of a snow day with other area superintendents. It is a difficult decision and one that hinges on what is best for student safety.
If the weather is severe enough, the decision to cancel school may be made the night before the snow day. If so, this will occur in time for the closing to run on the 10 p.m. news. In many cases, however, the decision is made the morning of the potential snow day. If a snow day is called, the decision is made by 5 a.m.
Snow day closings will be listed in a variety of places. Parents/Guardians who opted in for school messages will receive a School Messenger call, text message, and/or email (depending on their preferences) alerting them of the situation. It will also be listed on local media. School closings will also appear on the home page of our website and on our twitter account, @SeamanSchools as well as our district Facebook page.
