The West Central School Board commended maintenance staff members Glen Tanner and Ron Schultz on their cleanup efforts after the snow event Tuesday night. Superintendent Charles Mellon explained they were at the corporation early to start.
“Their day on Wednesday began at 1 a.m. when they started pushing snow around,” said Mellon. “We did have to take the day off on Wednesday due to the county roads, but we were ready to go. I’m sure all of the students and staff appreciated that when they showed up Thursday morning.”
School was closed for students on Wednesday and Mellon said it will be made up.
“I need to let all of our people know that on Monday, April 1, this is no April fools joke: you will need to be to be in school!” Mellon said.
Knox Community School students will also be in school on Monday, April 1 to make up the snow day and Culver Community School students will be in school on April 19 for a snow make-up day.
