Snow Days

Information regarding school delays and closing can be found on all Lincoln and area TV and radio stations. 

There are many factors to consider before making the decision to cancel classes, to start late, or to dismiss early.  First and foremost, is the safety of the students, faculty, parents, and staff.  Such a decision is not taken lightly.

We will be communicating with other area schools and hopefully will make a decision as to a weather related two-hour late start or closing as soon as possible.   Occasionally a decision can be made either for a two-hour late start or a closing the night before.  In the case of severe weather please check the 10:00 pm Lincoln news for up-to-date late start and closing information.  Weather-related dismissals can also be found by going to the school website at www.meridianmustangs.org

The school will be continuing to use the School Messenger automated telephone-messaging program where each family will be called about delays and closings.   Therefore, please make sure you keep the school notified of any changes of phone numbers.  If you have not been receiving these automated messages, please contact the school. 

Occasionally it may be necessary because of bad weather to have an early out.  If this is the case every effort will be made to publicize the early out and contact parents.  We do not want to have students home alone.

In case of bad weather, school will be held only if the school buses can safely pick up and deliver students. Notice of school closing will be announced on Radio Stations: KGMT 1310 AM-Fairbury, KFAB 1110 AM-Omaha, KWBE 1450AM-Beatrice; TV Channel: KHAS-TV Channel 5-Hastings, KOLN/KGIN-TV Channel 10-Lincoln, KLKN TV-TV Channel 8-Lincoln, and through the School Messenger automated telephone-messaging program. The following procedures will be followed as closely as possible in making school announcements. In all cases the safety of the students and staff will be the primary concern in determining whether the school will operate.


Before school starts: Notice will be made as early as possible. Every effort will be made to notify the media before 7:00 a.m., but all parents are urged to use their judgment as to whether they wish to send their child(ren).  


After school is in session: We will use the same media to make notification of school closing. Students will be sent home only if we have reasonable assurance that they can safely reach home. If you, as a parent, feel that you wish to pick up your child early, we again urge you to use your best judgment in this matter and will certainly not question your decision to do so.
