Paradise, Calif.--People living on the ridge saw snow and hail Monday and schools were prepared shoveling and plowing trying to keep up with all the winter weather.

Today we spoke with Jake Timm, the director of maintenance and operations for the Paradise Unified School District, and he said a normal shift for maintenance crews is 6:00 a.m. to 2:30 in the afternoon, but today they've been working since four this morning to keep the schools clean and safe.

Every school has four maintenance staff and one custodian, and they are all deployed early when severe weather is in the forecast.

Theyre out there hand shoveling, plowing, and if necessary, outside contractors are brought in to spread sand.

Depending where you were on the ridge today, you may have either seen just some rain, but many saw hail and snow.

Today four schools in the district had to be cleared.

"Rest assured we're doing everything we can to try and keep the students, staff and general public safe," said Timm.

Crews will be working throughout the day until the hail and snow stops.

If you see any spots of concern at your child's school, you are encouraged to contact the district and they will take care of it.
