School District of Oconee County issues Memo concerning inclement weather policy

(Seneca, SC)——–With winter approaching and with the inclement weather it brings, the School District of Oconee County issued a memo this week regarding their inclement weather policies.

When there is a potential of hazardous conditions, administrators will visually check road conditions in each attendance area and also consult law enforcement and Oconee County Emergency Services.

Any decision to delay or cancel school will be made by 5:30am and that information will be disseminated between 5:30am and 6am via the School District and school websites, through the School Messenger Call System, which is delivered to parents and staff via phone, text or e-mail, through local radio and TV, including 94.1 The Lake and via the Twitter and the Facebook accounts for the School District.

When schools are closed, no students should report and make-up days will be announced. A 2-hour delay means that all schools will open two hours later than normal with buses also running two hours later as well and that morning pre-school intervention classes will not meet.

Also, athletic practices, games or concerts or any afternoon or evening activities are cancelled as well when the School District makes that announcement during inclement weather.
