  • McLeod County 4-H Winter Weather Protocol

    We follow closures and cancellations of schools. For all county-wide events, we will cancel in the event that one or more schools closes early, closes for the day or calls off after school activities. Cancellation and rescheduling decisions will be communicated to our 4-H members and volunteers through sending a mass email and text message (only to those who have ok’d it in 4honline) to all members and volunteers using 4honline. We will also contact KDUZ/KARP radio to have them make cancellation announcements. When cancelling an event that will be attended by only a small number of people, in addition to sending an email, text, and contacting the radio, we will make calls to those who have pre-registered. We will try to make cancellation and rescheduling decisions as soon as possible for all events, but no later than 12 p.m. (if possible) on the day of the event for a weeknight meeting/event and the work day prior to an event for weekend events. Most importantly, use your best judgment. If you feel it is unsafe to travel, please do not do so.
