Winter Weather

Winter driving can be dangerous for bus drivers, their passengers and everyone else on the road. Minimizing the chances of winter road accidents takes some foresight, training and a healthy respect for the power of Mother Nature. The Boys Club, Cherokee Tribal DOT and Cherokee Central Schools monitor weather and road conditions on a daily and hourly basis if needed to insure safe transportation for all of our students.  You will be able to receive the latest school closing information from several different sources including, but not limited to: WLSO News, Cherokee Boys Club Facebook  and the Cherokee Central Schools Information System.

Halloween Safety

Halloween is an exciting time for our kids, but there are a few safety tips that everyone should remember.  Costumes should be reflective or brightly colored to ensure that drivers can easily see your ghouls and goblins, if the costume is not reflective or bright use a flashlight or some reflective tape. Trick or treat in neighborhoods that you are familiar with, and always inspect all of the treats before you allow your ghouls and goblins to eat any of the treats.

Drivers should take their time and be very careful in order to ensure that everyone has a fun and safe Halloween.


The Boys Club extends its sincere sympathy to the friends and family of Woodie McCoy who passed away Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013.  Woodie was the mother of Jeannie Arkansas, Executive Assistant for the General Manager of the Boys Club.  Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
