School Closings/Delays


 

The primary consideration in a school closing is the safety of students. Factors relevant to safety include icy roads, reduced visibility, drifting snow, chill factor, flooding, high wind and mechanical and health hazards at the school.

In the event that school is closed,there is a delayed opening or early dismissal because of an emergency, the district will use its School Connects system to contact parents via telephone and email.  If you have not yet provided your contact information, please notify your child's building office to be added to our notification system.  In addition,the following radio and TV stations will broadcast the announcement no later than 7:00 AM:
