Inclement Weather Protocol Reminder

With winter right around the corner, we want to remind families of our inclement weather protocol. 

If conditions are obvious by mid to early evening that the weather will not allow for school the next day, we will make the cancellation call that night by 9:00 p.m. However, when the weather deteriorates overnight, district transportation staff begin checking the roads at 3:30 a.m. that morning. They will also contact local road crews, as well as the police department to pinpoint local trouble areas. By 5:30 a.m. a decision will be made regarding school cancellation.
