Delays & Closings

Franklin County Community School Corporation Bad Weather Days

The decision to delay or cancel school is rarely an easy one and one we do not take lightly. When making our decision we consult with a number of knowledgeable resources including county and state highway officials, law enforcement personnel, and experienced school bus drivers to help us make informed decisions that will keep your children safe.

Because of our large geographic area, sometimes roads in one area appear passable, while hazardous driving conditions exist in a different part of the county, impacting our ability to operate buses safely. At other times, after extended periods of bad weather, main roads are passable but lesser-traveled roads are not. For this reason, we have implemented procedures that may allow us to have fewer “snow days” to make up later in the year.
