Papillion school officials respond to concerns about lack of snow removal at some schools.
Papillion District Spokesperson Annette Eyman said that on Friday a decision was made and shared at each elementary school to close all weekend activities due to weather.
At that time it was decided that the district would not clear elementary school lots until early Monday morning. Eyman said " This is really a financial decision because we can then bring our maintenance crew in early and allow them to leave early on a school day instead of paying overtime for the weekend."
The assistant superintendennt said he personally went out to Walnut Creek and drove through the lot Monday morning.. The sidewalks were complete cleared and dry. The parking lot was not dry and there was some ice due to community people driving on it over the weekend. Walnut Creek has a good hill for sledding.
The maintenance crew was going to make another trip through the parking lot Monday.
