Winter Weather Information

During the 2023-2024 school year, when Little Miami Local Schools announces a school closure, the day will be a traditional calamity day - indicating NO WORK for students. If the district needs to make up instructional hours, additional hours of instruction will be scheduled using previously scheduled days off or by adding days to the end of the school year.

Cold Weather

Little Miami Schools will consider delaying or closing on days when The National Weather Service issues a Wind Chill Advisory or Wind Chill Warning. With students walking to school and waiting at bus stops, extreme cold of this nature is a safety issue.

  • The National Weather Service issues a Wind Chill Warning when wind chills are -25 or colder.
  • The National Weather Service issues a Wind Chill Advisory when wind chills are between -15 and -24.
