Delaying or canceling class for student and teacher safety

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - With the recent winter weather also comes school delays and closures.

But how much snow or ice is too much when it comes to canceling or postponing class?

The principal at Trinity Lutheran School delayed class Thursday morning. She keeps and eye on the forecast when there's snow or ice predicted.

She says she doesn't want to put her students or teachers at risk.

"We have students who come from Hastings, Palmer, Cairo and Saint Libory and they have a distance to travel. We want to make sure everyone is safe out on the roads," said Trinity Lutheran School Principal Sandy Armstrong.

Trinity Lutheran officials say adjustments are key when there are delays. They typically have their first lunch at 11 a.m but Thursday they pushed back lunch a bit to make sure the lunch lady arrived safely.
