CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
It will be a long night for
many school district officials charged with the task of deciding whether or not
to cancel school due to winter weather conditions.
"That's not looking too good
for tonight," John Beckemeyer said looking at the radar on his smart phone.
Beckemeyer, the operations
manager at Oak Hill School District, will be up at quarter after three in the
morning to hit the roads.
"We're looking at temperatures,
we're looking at conditions of the roads, we're talking to the townships trying
to find out where they stand on it and how far they have to go until they have
the roads ready," Beckemeyer said.
With four of his grand kids in
the district, the snow day call is personal. He knows the winter weather can be
especially dangerous for new drivers.
"Not just for me being
inexperienced but people I think drive crazier when weather conditions are
bad," student driver Jacob Gerke said.
"They go too fast," his
Bick's driving instructor Jerry Jones echoed. "They don't slow down in the
corners they don't slow down or realize how much stopping distance it takes."
Gerke, a sophomore at Elder,
is hoping area schools will call it early. For districts, however, it is not
about making the popular choice.
"I was at a thing one time
and the bet was ‘Well when Oak Hills has another snow day'," Beckemeyer
Instead, he says it is about
making the safe choice.
Beckemeyer says the district
generally tries to make a final decision by 4:30 a.m. if possible. Once the
decision is made they post it to their Twitter page and Facebook page.
