TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The negative, icy temperatures could impact local schools. Many are delayed or cancelled Tuesday, and administrators are also keeping an eye on Wednesday.
We talked to all three school corporations in Tippecanoe County and Purdue about what it takes to issue a cancellation or delay.
Tippecanoe, Lafayette and West Lafayette school corporations all say -15 degrees or below is typically the temperature threshold for whether to issue a delay or cancellation. However, factors like humidity, road conditions and salt trucks have an impact.
The corporations all like to make the decision by 5:30 a.m.
Purdue also tries to make the decision by 5:30 a.m. However, the wind chill typically has to drop below -30 degrees.
