Pella School Board Approves Snow Day Practice Policy

Posted: Saturday, January 30th, 2010 at 6:27 am

The Pella School Board approved a policy at this week’s school board meeting that establishes clearer guidelines on extracurricular practices on days when weather alters the schedule. Pella Schools Superintendent Mark Wittmer says the policy includes no morning practices or rehearsals on days with a late start, as well as no afternoon practices on days when students will be let out early for inclement weather.

Wittmer adds that the tricky part applies to days when school is called off, but conditions improve by mid-day to allow afternoon practices. In that situation, the decision to allow afternoon practices and rehearsals will be left up to the judgment of school administrators.
