Weather announcements from yesterday

In the event of bad weather, we all want the latest information and want it quickly. As with previous episodes of bad weather, information was posted here just as soon as it was available to us. Posting it here is the most efficient way we can get the information out, and get it out completely, to a large number of people. While we pass information such information as school closings on to the media, we have no control over the detail of information that is passed on to the public. Here, we can go into as much detail as needed. For example, elementary, junior high, and high school dismissal times will always be different from each other because the same buses which carry elementary school home also return after that route and pick up high school students and then junior high students.

Here is what was posted yesterday. As each new development occurred, we amended the post:

We are presently under a tornado warning. We will hold buses until the warning is no longer in effect. As there are new developments, they will be posted here.

2:53 We have just received word that the warning has been extended. (It had been set to expire at 3:00.)

2:57 The tornado warning has been extended until 3:30.

3:10 The city of Talladega has been cleared of the tornado warning. We may now begin to release students. The bus schedule will be as follows:

All elementary schools will dismiss at 3:15
Talladega High School will dismiss at 3:45
Ellis Junior High will dismiss at 4:00

The difference is times is due to the fact that buses deliver elementary students home and then those same buses go to THS and Ellis.
