Winter weather has arrived and temperatures are expected to stay well below freezing. We are sharing some guidelines and tips for keeping kids safe and warm.
Tips for dressing in cold-weather
Dress your child in layers of clothing that can be taken off and put on easily. Mittens, instead of gloves, will allow fingers to retain warmth. A warm hat will help maintain body temperature. Prevent frostbite by keeping ears covered at all times. Waterproof boots should be roomy enough for a child to wiggle their toes while wearing an extra pair of socks. Wet clothing and boots should be removed immediately after playing outdoors.
Athena-Weston School District bus routes may be impacted by winter weather due to drifting snow, freezing rain, fog, flooding or plowing schedules. The most impacted bus routes cover the mountain and include Upper and Lower River.
The district would like to remind families of our Inclement Weather Bus Schedule
If you have any questions, please call the District Office at 541-566-3551.
