Snow prompts Issaquah School District to delay classes

March 13, 2012

NEW — 6 a.m. March 13, 2012

Snow blanketed the Issaquah area overnight and led the Issaquah School District to operate on a two-hour delay Tuesday morning.

Because of the delay, district officials canceled all before-school activities, including morning school-age care, Headstart, morning and afternoon preschool, morning and afternoon kindergarten, and out-of-district transportation.

In addition, full-day kindergarten starts two hours late due to the snow.

Spots in the Issaquah area and other areas in the Cascade foothills received several inches of snow overnight. Motorists should exercise caution on state Route 18 across the Tiger Mountain summit.

National Weather Service forecasters in Seattle said snow is not expected to accumulate throughout the morning. The temperature is expected to climb into the mid-40s and the snow level is expected to rise to about 1,000 feet.

    No snow here, and I mean nothing, not even on the grass, but I cannot complain about two hours late.

    We have a light sprinkling on the roofs here in Sammamish. Nothing at all on the roads. It’s ridiculous that school gets delayed or cancelled so often when the majority of the school district seems okay. Can’t those outer lying snow-prone areas have separate snow schedules? Or maybe it is time Sammamish was its own school district!

Got something to say?
