Inclement weather plans

  • SCHOOL CLOSURES AND DELAYS

    School may be delayed or canceled because of weather conditions or other events. Bus routes may also be affected by unsafe travel conditions. 

    The announcement of a school closure or delay is usually made early in the morning. All authorized parents and guardians will receive a phone call and email if school is closed or delayed. If you have a mobile phone number on file with your child's school, you should also receive a text message. 

    Updated school closure and delay information also will be posted on the school district’s website, on the FlashAlert website, and the district Facebook page. If school is canceled, the school day will be made up later in the year. If bus routes are limited due to snow or ice on roadways, the alternate routes are listed on the transportation website

    In addition to the mass communication system, there are other options for receiving a text message in the event of a school closure or delay. When the school district announces a change in the schedule, it notifies the local TV and radio stations through a service called FlashAlert. You can receive a text message directly from FlashAlert whenever the school district posts a notice to that system. You can receive that service by signing up for FlashAlert Messenger. Many local TV and radio stations also offer similar services. Most of the major radio and television stations broadcast information about school closures.

    EARLY DISMISSAL

    Conditions could develop during the school day that may require school to be dismissed earlier than planned. Information about early dismissals will be provided to local radio and television stations and distributed through the school district’s mass communication system. If school is dismissed early, and transportation home is not available, a child will be released only to his or her parent or guardian or to a person previously authorized by the parent or guardian. We ask that parents please bring photo identification (such as a driver’s license) to ensure student safety. School staff will remain at the school until all students have been released.
