With winter weather approaching, how can I check to see school closings online?
There are several resources you can check to see if area schools are closed. If you have Internet access, try www.usd497.org or www.ljworld.com. The Lawrence school district now offers a sign-up for cancellation notification through e-mail. You can do this by visiting the district Web site and clicking on the link to inclement weather procedures, then follow the link to the sign-up.
