OKC schools change cancellation policy

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahoma City Public Schools officials say they have changed their weather cancellation policy to include extreme low temperatures.

The Oklahoman reports (http://bit.ly/19Q6MjS) that Interim Oklahoma City Superintendent Dave Lopez announced at a board meeting on Tuesday that he would decide by 5:25 a.m. on days when extreme cold is expected whether to cancel school. The move would be made if the actual temperature is 10 degrees or below or the wind chill is 5 degrees or below.

Earlier this month, Lopez apologized after he waited until 6:30 a.m. on a bitterly cold morning to cancel classes for the district's 46,000 students.

The policy change will also include extreme high temperatures of 110 degrees or more.
