The City of Haleyville and the Haleyville City Schools are monitoring the possibility of severe weather for Tuesday. The forecast is not certain, and probably will not be so until sometime Tuesday morning.
All city department heads have been briefed, according to Mayor Ken Sunseri, and the City is ready to implement its emergency operations plan, if necessary. Sunseri added, "This is not a time to panic; this is a time to be prepared."
Superintendent Clint Baggett said that the situation will be closely monitored and that schedules will be adjusted if warranted by the weather. In an email to media, staff and BOE members, Baggett said,
"Today's EMA 2:00pm update posted a medium threat with the weather front possibly moving into NW Alabama around 3:00pm tomorrow afternoon; greatest potential of sever weather between the hours of 5 to 7pm. So much depends on the speed of the front and how warm the temperature rises during the day. We will keep a watchful eye and listening ear tomorrow, evaluate and adjust our regular daily schedule as well as after school activities if necessary.
"Plan A: Regular day schedule; all after school activities as planned
"Plan B: Regular day schedule; all after school activities cancelled
"Plan C: After lunch dismissal; all after school activities cancelled
"Plan A will hopefully be followed, however, if B or C is necessary, notification will be sent through our local media and our phone call service."
