    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 to the email your family has listed in 4honline.  Text messages will be sent to those who have signed up for our McLeod County 4-H group.  To join our general McLeod County 4-H group, visit We will also contact KDUZ/KARP radio to have them make cancellation announcements. 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.
