  Welcome to the

  Carthage R-9 School District

Inspiring Excellence

No School
Tuesday, January 16th!

We WILL NOT have school Tuesday, January 16th.  Despite the tremendous efforts from local, county, and state snow removal crews, I believe too many roads will not be safe for our students, staff, and community to use during the school commute.  However, a critical part of the decision was based on the predicted wind chill temperatures between -10 and -20 during starting school hours.  Knowing many roads will refreeze tonight and the wind chill factor will be dangerously cold, I believe we are better off to cancel school.


Although the temperature will start the day in single digits Wednesday, I believe we will probably go to school as most roads will be clear and the wind chill factor will not be as severe.  However, that decision will not be made at this point. 


No decisions have been made regarding games scheduled for tomorrow night. 


This day will be made up February 19th


Thank you to our custodial and maintenance crews for preparing our sidewalks, parking lots, and drives as if we were having school tomorrow.
