Bonita~thank you for the explanation. I wasn't thinking about people involved w/service. Just attending.
Our schools never close, but we do have days when the buses dont run. I assume as a parent you could drive your kids into school if you have to be on the roads for work though.
I would say a few hours notice would be good though for most things.

Here, if the bus doesn't run...no school.
So different than what I'm used to! We don't have sunday school we have CCD. It is only on Sundays 1x a month for kindy and grade 1. Grade 2-Confirmation is weeknights from Mon-Wed. No nursery workers. No interpreters. 2 Priests and Sister who doesn't live there. and she runs CCD. CCD teachers are volunteers and usually parents (although I taught in HS and after)
I don't think our church has ever been closed for services, but I guess we've lucked out and not had nasty weather on a Sunday. When we had the blizzard two years ago, it started on a Tuesday around lunchtime, and that's our choir night - so that was cancelled I think before the snow even started falling. The kids got out early that day, and they cancelled school for the next day. What annoyed me was that I still had to wake up early to call into work to see if we were closed (which we were). They wouldn't make the call when they had us leave early. 20.6" later, we were definitely closed.

Here in Texas they close things at the drop of the hat. Of course they don't have the equipment to handle very much either, it is hard to justify spending money on equipment that is only used once or twice a year.
Where I grew up in Montana the schools never closed either. The buses didn't always run but the town kids had to go to school because they all walked. It was great for us because we rode the bus
