Safeties NOT On Duty When Windchill Is ≤0 °F

With the very cold weather upon us, I'd like to remind you that safeties are not on duty during inclement weather. This would mean when the wind chill is below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Checking out the various weather websites would be recommended to determine the exact wind chill in Ann Arbor. When spring finally arrives, thunder/lightning storms would also prevent safeties from being on duty. So, please keep this in mind when your child goes to school or when he/she goes home. A family plan on how your child would cross streets in case of future weather conditions is advised.
