When a school is closed for the day, there are a number of different reasons for the closure. While it’s not uncommon for schools to close due to inclement weather, it is far more common for schools to close because of teacher absences, even if the weather is perfect. School districts in Arkansas had to make difficult decisions this winter, as they had to figure out how to deal with the effects of the frigid temperatures. Many school districts chose to delay the opening of schools to allow students and staff to arrive at school safely. Others had to close schools due to the weather, or even cancel school entirely.
