During periods of inclement weather, a variety of road conditions may exist due to the broad geographic area Fuqua School serves. All of these conditions are considered in making the decision regarding whether or not to close school.
When the school operates on a regular schedule, bus drivers have the authority to delay leaving their area if, in their judgment, road conditions are questionable. They also have the authority to cancel their route altogether, with permission from the Director of Transportation, if they believe conditions are too dangerous for travel. When either occurs, the driver will call each family to let them know about the delay or cancellation. Students are not counted as tardy or absent should the decision be made by the driver to delay or cancel a specific route.
In addition, the school will honor the judgment of the parent and not count a student tardy or absent if the parent elects to delay the arrival of the student or to keep the student at home due to road conditions where they live.
If there is a delayed opening of school, no morning Falcon Care will be provided; if there is an early dismissal, no afternoon Falcon Care will be provided.
