The Dallas Kiwanis Club recently donated funds to support
five Dallas School District students in purchasing school
lunches for the remainder of the year. The project, establish-
ed last school year by Kiwanis past president Beverly Ather-
holt, pays for school lunches for students in need who do not
otherwise qualify for the federally-sponsored free or reduced
lunch program in the district. From let, are Dr. Thomas Duffy,
Dallas Middle School principal; Leslie Piccini, food service di-
rector, Metz; Cliff Parker, Kiwanis treasurer; and Beverly Ath-
erholt, Kiwanis past president.
The ‘Classic’ Country Line Dancers recently paid a visit to Meadows Nursing and Rehabilitation Center Dallas and entertained
residents with energetic, boot stomping fun as well as funny stories and jokes by Handi the Clown. From left, are Toni Weiss,
instructor; Catherine Kearney, Carol Armillei, Adrienne Fine, Leona Kuttenberg, Elaine Kindler, Fran Holtzman, Geri McNulty, Sue
Mazzocchi, Mary Dixon, Jeannie Sickler, Sarah Derhammer, Nancy Mentyka and Carol Elston as “Handi” the Clown.

that decision was not made un-
til approximately 6:20 a.m.
McGovern said that some
Lake-Lehman students get
picked up by 6 a.m. For his dis-
trict, the decision to have a
two-hour delay or a cancella-
tion needs to be made no later
than 5:45 a.m. before buses are
on the road. Because snow
didn’t start to fall until later in
the morning on Tuesday,
McGovern felt it was safer to
get students to school before
the roads got worse, and then
wait it out until the end of the
day when roads were clear.
“The only time it gets tricky
is when the private schools
make a different decision,” said
McGovern. West Side Career
and Technical Center also had
a two-hour delay on Tuesday.
“This is one of the first times
we have had a situation like this
arise,” he said. Because of the
communication between dis-
tricts, schools are usually on
the same schedule but on Tues-
day, Lake-Lehman students
who attend West Side CTC
were given a study hall period
until buses were up and run-
Before decisions are made,
both Galicki and McGovern
contact the director of the bus
companies serving their re-
spective districts. For Dallas
School District, that means
calling Jeff Emanuel, whom
A two-inch snowfall delayed school buses and inconvenienced
shoppers like 80-year-old Stanley Mickus, of Dallas, who waited
at Fernbrook Corners for the county bus to take him shopping.
Galicki relies on to give him an
evaluation of roads in the dis-
trict. If Emanuel feels the roads
are slick, he will offer an opin-
ion on whether the district
should have a delay or a clos-
If officials change the status
from a delay to a closing, they
make that decision by 8:30 a.m.
before buses are on the road.
In other weather situations,
like when an overnight storm is
anticipated, decisions
made a little differently.
“We like to make a decision
by 10 p.m. when there is a
storm pending so it can make
the 10 or 11 p.m. news,” Galicki
In the case of a cancellation,
every district handles make-up
days differently. Galicki has
found that working snow days
into the end of the year works
best for his district. He noted
that some districts will take
days out of extended holidays
such as Easter break but be-
cause families tend to make
travel plans during those
times, attendance is poor.
If there is a delay, the school
day counts as a full day. McGov-
ern said that, in delay scena-
rios, elementary classes deter-
mine their schedule by room
while students in upper grades
follow a condensed schedule.
High school students have eagl
of their scheduled classes,
though they are shortened.
Both superintendents
stressed their main concern
when making these decisions is
the safety of the students, per-
sonnel and drivers.
