Extreme Cold Weather Notice

O-M Staff, Parents, and Students, 

Whenever it gets around negative thirty-five (-35) windchill, we will not have school at Orient-Macksburg.  The rationale for this is the safety of our students and staff, as it takes approximately ten minutes for frostbite to occur on exposed skin.  

It is extremely important that our students are properly dressed.  They need to be wearing winter coats, hats, boots, and gloves.  This would also be true for our students who drive their own vehicles. 

Frostbite is not something to take lightly.  If you do not have these clothing items for your child, please let me know.  We will do whatever we can to assist in getting those items for your child. 

  Thank you!
