Well, if you are new here, welcome to Oregon weather. If you are an old hat, this is about what you would expect. The forecast for today held the snow level above 2500 feet. Here in RR at 1000 feet, we saw snow off and on today. Several inches may have fallen in some areas of Wimer. No snow was to be found in GP, Medford, Central Point, or almost anywhere else in the Rogue Valley. During the heaviest snow this afternoon, we made the cautious decision to send home JR/SR HS students with elementary in order to be safe in case the snow continued or the roads froze up as it gets closer to being dark. After that decision was made, it turned to rain here at the district office. Go figure.
So, what does that mean for us tomorrow? Simply that we won’t know what will happen until it happens. The latest forecast discussion from the National Weather Service suggests snow is possible, but they aren’t certain of snow levels. Check here for the latest. https://www.weather.gov/mfr/ We will simply wait for what comes and make a decision in the morning based on what we get and how confident First Student feels about transporting. You should get notification around 6:00 a.m. or earlier if there will be a closure or delay. Have a great day, and embrace the uncertainty!
