Recent snow could cause longer MO school year

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's education department says the latest in a series of winter storms could cause school districts to extend classes into the summer.
   Department of Elementary and Secondary Education spokeswoman Sarah Potter says public schools have already had more snow days than usual in the current academic year.
   Many districts have had to call off classes the past two months because of snow, ice and cold temperatures. Potter says schools might need to cut short spring and summer vacations.
   The department requires school districts to build six snow days into their calendars and those days must be made up in full. Subsequent snow days only count for a half day that must be made up during the academic year.

   Students at one Arnold school will have to attend classes off campus this morning.  That's because a 160 foot cell tower in the front yard of the Lone Dell Elementary School has become unstable.  It's leaning precariously and US Cellular engineers have said they're concerned that it could topple over.  

   Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies closed Tomahawk Drive and Gary Road in Arnold as a precaution.  

   School officials have said Lone Dell will hold classes this morning at the Rickman Auditorium in the 700 block of Jeffco Boulevard.

 

   The Fox C-6 School District posted the following letter on its website (http://www.fox.k12.mo.us/):

 

   Dear Parents,

 

    Late this afternoon at approximately 2:00 p.m. the district was contacted by US Cellular about the cell tower at Lone Dell Elementary.  It was inspected yesterday and results were issued today. The inspection failed.  As a precautionary measure, Lone Dell Elementary will have NO access tomorrow. The main safety concern is not the actual school building, but cars and busses entering the drive by the entrance where the tower is located.   

   The students will be picked up, as usual, at their respective bus stops and taken to Rickman Auditorium for school.  They will also utilize the Fox C-6 Service Center for their fall parties.  

   The safety of your children and yourselves is our top priority. As a preventative measure, we feel this is the safest solution for everyone involved.  It would be helpful if you could pack a lunch for your child.  However; if that is not possible our food service program will provided a cold sack lunch.  The children will be taken home at the regular dismissal time and dropped at their regular bus stops.  If you pick your child up, you will need to do so at the Fox C-6 Service Center at normal dismissal time.  

   Thank you for your support and understanding.  If you have any other questions related to this, please contact our office at 636-296-8000. 

 

   Thank you in advance for your cooperation, 

 

   Dr. Dianne Critchlow 

   Superintendent of Schools

   A heat wave is taking hold of the metro-area and reminding us that it's August in St. Louis.  

   The National Weather Services has issued a heat advisory for the St. Louis area from noon Tuesday until 7:00 Saturday evening.  

   Temperatures are expected to rise into the mid and upper 90's, with heat indices around 100 over the next several days.  There will be little relief at night, especially in the urban heat island of St. Louis.  

   At least a few schools are closing early today as a precaution.  They include the Legacy Christian Academy in Caseyville which will close at noon and St. John the Baptist in Villa Ridge which plans to close at 11:30.  Also, all schools in the Bunker Hill District are closing at 2 p.m. today.

   And the extreme heat is forcing some high school football teams to change game times this weekend. Hazelwood School District officials rescheduled games for Hazelwood Centrals and Hazelwood East. Both games have been moved from 1 PM to 10 AM. 

   Extra precaution is warranted, especially for those spending time outside.  OSHA recommends drinking extra water and taking frequent breaks in the shade or in air conditioning.  

   For information about cooling centers, call the United Way by dialing 2-1-1 from any land line phone.  Or call 1-800-427-4626.
