A relief for parents to learn in advance Bartlesville School is closed on Tuesday.
Snow started accumulating just before 9pm on Monday in Bartlesville and at 10pm Bartlesville School District announced it would not be safe enough to send kids to school.
Last week, many kids were on their way or already at school when the District closed because of frozen roads.
One parent in Dewey is still waiting for the alert.
“We know it’s coming, we are just waiting for the phone calls,” said Candice Cramer.
Before Bartlesville announced it would be closing, one father says he was just waiting on the weather.
“It’s Oklahoma so it may not snow at all tonight,” said Gary Frank.
However, with school now closed, it will be his turn to stay home with the kids who are in elementary, middle school and high school.
“I have PTO from work and my wife doesn’t so it’s usually me who has to stay home with the kids,” said Frank.
For Brandy Kastl, if school is closed most likely her daycare will be closed.
“DHS doesn’t pay for the babysitter and DHS doesn’t pay for the backup.”
Her first grader who has Asperger’s Syndrome and he doesn’t like when his schedule is changed. So his mother has been preparing him today in case school is closed.
If inclement weather has already hit before 6am, many school districts tell FOX23 News they make a decision by 10pm to close school.
If inclement weather is expected advisors usually test the roads around 4am and announce a closing by 6am.
