School Systems Prep for First Snow Threat of 2013

LOUISA, Ky. (WSAZ) -- Lawrence County School Administrators have been making a list and checking it twice, as they prepare for the first snowfall of the 2013 fall/winter season.

"The technology in the palm of your hand these days is amazing," Superintendent Mike Armstrong said. "My promise to everyone in school this year is I'll post it first on my Twitter account."

Armstrong's new twitter ID is @mikearmstrongLC.

The superintendent and school bus coordinator say the technology helps, but both plan to hit the road shortly after 4 a.m. Tuesday morning.

"I know we can look at radar and that kind of thing," said Mike Webb, the bus coordinator with Lawrence County Schools. "We've got radios in all the buses, and nothing beats getting out on the road and seeing for ourselves, especially in the higher elevations.

Lawrence County Schools is one of the largest geographical school districts in the Bluegrass State. The Board of Education runs 36 bus routes that cover almost 2,500 miles a day.

"Our motto is safety first, schedules second," Webb said. "Safety is our top priority."
