Cascade school seeks special weather designation
By DAVE McMILLION
CASCADE - Washington County Board of Education officials have proposed a special weather zone designation for Cascade that would allow the elementary school to delay the start of classes during wintry weather.
The proposal for the Cascade mountain zone came after parents asked school officials to re-examine the way they determine whether roads are safe enough for school buses in the winter.
Parents asked officials to review the situation after a bus carrying Cascade Elementary School students slid on Ritchie Road on Dec. 22.
