in newswatch 12's mari nelson is in ashland where oregon department of traportaon is gearing up for a busy next 24 hours. she's giving us a live look at conditions right now. this morning, all i'm dealing with in ashland right now is the wind, but im at the snow plow station where they are prepping for a busy next 24 hours. you just heard cailtin talk about the storm that's coming in. it's going to be dangerous to travel, especially between the passes all day today and into tomorrow. not only is travel going to be affected by this storm, but also your kids school could be too. the principal of butte falls charter school says that high schools are affected a little bit more than elementary schools when there is a delayed start. "the elementary school they just kind of pick up where they normally would at 10 o'clock. but the high school we tend to squish all the morning periods so they're just a half an hour each until lunch time. so they still get to go to each class, it's just a shortened version" she also said that when a whole day of school is missed due to a weather cancelation, it will be made up at a later date. the decision is made by checking the news and weather apps ahead of time and trying to predict of school travel will be safe or not.
