Wichita Public Schools USD 259 has canceled or rescheduled all after-school and evening activities for Wednesday due to the winter storm.
School will remain in session for the rest of the day Wednesday and normal bus runs will occur, though there may be delay because the buses will not be traveling on elevated roadways.
The evening cancellations include rehearsals, parent conferences, athletic practices and competitions and the middle school after-school program. Latchkey programs for the elementary schools will go on as scheduled, but school officials are urging parents to pick up their kids as soon as possible after school.
Parent-teacher conferences will continue only until the end of the regularly-scheduled school day. Any rescheduled evening conference times for parents will be determined on a school-by-school basis next week.
District officials are set to meet at 8:30 p.m. to evaluate conditions and make a decision on school for Thursday.
