• As inclement weather and winter approaches, so does the potential for late start schedules and school closures. Here are some things to remember. 

    In the event of a late start:

    1. When weather situations arise, we consult multiple sources prior to making decisions on closing or delaying school activities, which may include communication with:

      a.    Local first responders
      b.    Transportation officials
      c.    Area school districts
      d.    Meteorology experts

    2. If a decision is made to close school or delay school, District officials will post notifications by 6 a.m. on the day of school.

    3. If a decision is made to end the day early or cancel after-school programs/activities, District officials will notify the public as soon as it’s appropriate.
