LINCOLN COUNTY WEATHER RELATED PLANS ~ 2017 Reminder

One-Hour Delay Plan: A one-hour delay indicates students should arrive at the regular designated bus stop locations one hour later than their normal pick up times. All student drivers, parent drop offs, and student walkers should arrive at their school locations one hour later than regularly scheduled. Staff should report to their worksite according to their regular work schedule unless otherwise directed by the superintendent. (This time would not be made up).  Following this delay plan announcement, school could still be cancelled for the day.

Two-Hour Delay Plan: A two-hour delay indicates students should arrive at the regular designated bus stop locations two hours later than their normal pick up times. All student drivers, parent drop offs, and student walkers should arrive at their school locations two hours later than regularly scheduled. Staff should report to their worksite according to their regular work schedule unless otherwise directed by the superintendent.  (This time would not be made up).  Following this delay plan announcement, school could still be cancelled for the day.

PLAN B

SAFE ROAD PICKUP

LCPS will announce “Plan B” on local television and local radio to communicate to parents, students, and staff. A School Messenger phone call will identify which roads our buses will not travel on, or a road in which the turnaround is impassable.  “Plan B” will mean that buses will run on all state roads, however, there are some county roads that our buses cannot travel.  Remember, state roads are those that are numbered (example: KY 2141, KY 1247 and KY 328) while county roads have names (fictional example, “Silvercreek Road”).  “Plan B” will only be used when state maintained roads are clear and a majority of county roads are clear.  A School Messenger call example of this could be: “LCPS will operate on Plan B. Listen carefully to the following list of roads affected. Plan B roads today include: Alpha Road, Beta Road, and Omega Hollow. If you live on one of these roads you may meet your bus earlier than normal where it intersects at the nearest state road or you may drive your child(ren) to your school(s).”

It is also important to note that the decision to implement Plan B will never be made in the early morning hours.  This decision will only be made and communicated before bedtime on the day prior to its use.  This announcement will most likely be made between 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM.  Please keep in mind that this decision can be altered to a “canceled status” the following morning if it seems to be the safer decision.

Please be patient with us to make Plan B successful as we are attempting to make it possible to minimize the number of school days cancelled and to keep the school year from extending too far into the summer. If you have further questions, please discuss with your bus driver, contact your school or the bus garage.
