GET READY FOR SNOW LATER THIS WEEK
We appear to be in for a pretty terrible winter storm.
The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather alert for later this week, with the worst impact likely to occur Thursday, February 3rd and possibly Friday, February 4th.
Unlike the snowfalls in January, this one is supposed to be that heavy wet snow that is great for making snowballs and snowmen, but also causes heart attacks for shovelers, downs trees and power lines. And we’re supposed to get a lot of it.
As always, we will continuously monitor conditions to determine whether it is necessary to close schools. If current predictions hold true, students may be home for a day or two until this storm passes through. Please plan accordingly.
School closings will always be shared with you through the district website, our social media channels, robocall, text and this e-newsletter.
Program cancellations and reschedule dates will be posted on the district website as they are made available. Until then, stay safe and warm out there, everybody.
WINTER WEATHER UPDATES (so far…)
All Boys & Girls Clubs sites will close early tomorrow, Wednesday, February 2nd, due to weather. Parents must pick up no later than 5:00 PM.
Second Harvest Drive-Thru Mobile Pantry on Thursday, February 3rd at Longfellow is canceled due to weather. The next distribution in Lorain will be Thursday, February 10th at Oakwood Park. View the full monthly distribution calendar here.
FREE TAX HELP FROM UNITED WAY

MEET THE TWO NEW SAFETY COORDINATORS WHO FOCUS ON RELATIONSHIPS, FIRST
“They have a level of expertise in the district, not only in safety but also in caring for kids and showing that love in our district,” Director Reuben Figueroa said.
“They know the job and have been here for more than 10 years each, but they also know people. You can teach tactics, protocols, and procedures but you cannot really teach someone how to genuinely love people and they do it naturally.”

DR. GRAHAM DISCUSSES WHAT GOES INTO CANCELING SCHOOL DUE TO THE WEATHER
It’s the question on everyone’s mind right now and probably the biggest decision Lorain Schools CEO Dr. Jeff Graham makes in the education realm: When is it too cold or snowy to keep schools open?
Lorain County Public Health will be administering COVID-19 vaccines and boosters from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at their office - 9880 Murray Ridge Rd, Elyria.
