The decision to close schools due to extreme weather is normally made before 6:00 a.m. Local radio and television stations are notified. School Closing announcements will also be posted to the Lincoln Public Schools' website. Generally, school will not be dismissed once it is in session. Many working parents are not prepared to receive their children early and safety becomes a major concern. Parents who so desire may come to the school to pick children up in inclement weather at any time during the day. The ultimate decision as to whether a child will attend school rests with the parents.
