Cold weather pushes back start time for Dublin schools

Extreme cold weather in the forecast has pushed back the start time for Dublin City Schools on Monday and Tuesday.

With the wind chill projected to be in the single digits during the time students ordinarily would be waiting for school buses, the school start time has been pushed back two hours, said school board member Bill Perry. Students should be at their bus stops two hours later than their normal times, he said.

School will start at 9:30 a.m. both days and will end at the usual time. He said parents have been notified via email and the automated phone system. The change also has been posted on the school system’s Facebook page.
