The district will try to determine school closures due to inclement weather by 6:30 a.m. We will communicate to parents as soon as possible using a variety of methods including an email to parents, social media, and school and district websites.
If schools are open, and you wish to keep your child home due to weather conditions, you may do so. Please let your school know of this decision. Parents/guardians are responsible for their child's safe travel to school. If possible, we encourage parents to walk their children to school in poor weather conditions.
To reach as many people as possible - as quickly as possible - the District works closely with our local media to share information. Listen to local radio stations and follow local news outlets online to also get information about the impact of severe weather or emergencies in our schools. No radio or television announcement will be made saying that schools are open. Only school closures will be announced by the media.
