Archie School District Closed Tomorrow 2/16/21

Due to inclement weather with projected extreme wind chill temperatures in the morning hours and hazardous road conditions, we will not be in session tomorrow, February 16, 2021. Additionally, the Harrisonville School District has cancelled all Cass Career Center classes for tomorrow.

The National Weather Service has a website displaying their wind chill chart. The site’s address is www.weather.gov/os/windchill/index.shtml. This chart shows that the wind chills that are likely to produce frostbite of exposed skin within thirty (30) minutes range from minus eighteen (-18) to minus thirty-three (-33) degrees. Students walking to or from school, or waiting for a bus should not need to be out in the cold longer than thirty (30) minutes. Therefore, if the wind chill is likely to be at minus 18 (-18) degrees or colder during the time period when students would be walking to school, walking home from school, and/or waiting for a bus the Archie School District will close schools.

Once again, due to inclement weather with projected extreme wind chill temperatures in the morning hours and hazardous road conditions we will not be in session tomorrow, February 16, 2021.
