BOZEMAN — When snow storms blow through the area, school districts are faced with deciding whether or not to close schools.

Students will be waking up to a little more snow Thursday morning.

Classes in the Bozeman School District, however, will go on as normal for all students and staff.

Superintendent Bob Connors said the district looks at several factors in deciding whether to cancel or continue classes including temperatures, road conditions, and the amount of snow expected.

And although those factors influence whether or not the district will close schools, Connors says the parents have the final say.

“And then remember, it’s up to the parents. If they don’t feel comfortable sending their children out to school when we keep the schools going, we want to make sure that the parents understand that too,” he explained.

Superintendent Connors says the district will continue to make their decisions based on what’s best for the students, staff and parents.
