RE: URGENT WEATHER ADVISORY
In cooperation with the Maine School Management Association, I am forwarding this information to advise you of a severe weather advisory.
The National Weather Service has extended the wind chill warning until 7:00 AM Friday. The strong combination of northwest winds and well below zero temperatures will allow wind chill temperatures to fall to extremely dangerous values of 30 - 50 below zero by later tonight and continue through Friday.

Weather related school cancellations or delays are, as always, a local decision.
