School Closings & Delays

SCHOOL CLOSINGS AND DELAYED OPENINGS

The decision to close school, have a delayed opening or to dismiss students early is made by the Superintendent. Every effort will be made to reach a final decision by 5:30 am in the event of a full day school closing or a delayed opening. While there are numerous factors to consider when making this decision, the most important factor is the safety of our children.

Critical questions and determining factors include:

  • Can the buses deliver students to and from school?
  • Can students safely get to and from the designated bus stops? If so, can they wait safely?
  • Have the roadcrews sufficiently cleaned the roads, not only in our district but in the surrounding ones to allow for staff to report?
  • Is the inclement weather going to continue throughout the day, or has it ceased.

Parents will be notified of a closure or delayed opening in the following ways.

  • Automated phone message
  • Automated email message
  • Information will be posted on the district website



90-Minute Delayed Opening Schedule

When a delayed opening is called, all schools will open one and a half (1 ½) hours later than usual. Please allow extra time for your child (ren) to get to their designated bus stop as well as for the bus to arrive.
