Turn to page 105 of the KHSAA Handbook and you will find the Policy that the KHSAA has adopted and you as National Federation Track and Field Official and/or KHSAA Official should follow.
Severe Weather Policy .....
The Referee or head official must delay or cancel a competition at the first sound of lightning or thunder at the site and the site should be cleared of all persons immediately by event administration. If it is anticipated that the storm will pass, the
competition may be resumed following a three (3) minute warm-up period, no sooner than thirty (30) minutes after the last sight of lightning or the last sound of thunder. If the severe weather is of great length or intensity, the Referee or lead contest official has the responsibility
and authority to cancel the competition. Officials are encouraged to learn the weather forecast prior to the start of the meet. Safety of the public and participants is the most important factor in any decision of this type. If a contest is postponed after the start due to inclement weather,
the officials originally assigned to the contest should make every effort to be available for the completion date. The member schools will not be liable for an additional fee for the officials to work the rescheduled game but will be liable for any additional travel expenses (mileage) fee.
Each local officials association is to implement a policy for the remuneration of officials working a rescheduled contest who were not originally assigned to the contest.
