- Published: February 7, 2020
The Yellow Springs Board of Education announced at 7:22 a.m. this morning that YS Schools would be closed due to deteriorating conditions, after previously announcing a two-hour delay.
The Antioch School is open today.
Today’s forecast, from The National Weather Service: “Snow likely, mainly before 1pm. Cloudy, with a high near 31. Northwest wind 11 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than a half-inch possible.”
Please check with your school or organizing individuals for cancellations or delays of after-school activities.
Village police and Miami Township Fire Rescue will make rounds to check on people with known care issues. If you are concerned about someone’s welfare, please call the police so that they may check on them.
If you have no heat or are suffering from exposure-related issues, call 911. Please note that it is illegal for electric and gas providers to turn off services if the temperature falls below freezing. The Bryan Center is also available 24 hours a day for warmth, if necessary.
Frozen water pipes:
Please note that broken water pipes are a major issue during cold snaps. Protect your pipes from freezing by:
• insulating pipes that are exposed to outside temperatures;
• closing all foundation vents under the house;
• opening cabinets under sinks to let warm air circulate
Never leave a building unheated during freezing temperatures unless all water lines, drains and toilets have been properly drained. If a water line breaks, it is important to shut off the valve within your house or at the meter.
