Eau Claire (WQOW) - Most schools took the big chill in stride on Monday by holding classes, but it's too early to say if that will happen on Tuesday.
In Eau Claire, Superintendent Hardebeck says they would consider closing school when the temperature or wind chill drops to -30. That doesn't mean schools automatically close when that threshold is met. Dr. Hardebeck says other factors are also considered. One factor could be how buses are running. On Monday morning, one bus had a mechanical problem, most likely because of the cold weather. Eau Claire Student Transit was able to send out another bus to pick up students. That's one of about 85 buses Student Transit runs every morning.
Chippewa Falls Superintendent Tom Hughes also said there are many factors that go into the decision to close school. Durand Superintendent Greg Doverspike says they don't have a written policy, but a rule of thumb is 20 degree below zero for an air temperature with a sustained wind chill of 35 below.
