School Delays and Cancellations

School Delays and Cancellations 2017-12-12T16:31:18+00:00

The district uses the best information available to make decisions on school closures, early dismissal, late start, and lowland bus routes.

Information will be posted before 6am. If no notice is posted, schools will operate on a regular schedule.

There are four likely ways weather conditions can impact the school day:

An early-morning decision is made to cancel school for the day. A make-up day will be held later in the school year.

Announcement for early dismissals may happen at any time during school day. Modified bus routes might be used. It is each family’s responsibility to ensure child’s safety to and from the pickup and drop off locations. Families are asked to instruct their students about what to do should there be an early school closure and parents aren’t home during the day.

Announcement will be made in the early morning to delay the start of school for two hours due to unsafe travel conditions in the early morning. School will start two hours later than the regular time, all bus routes will run two hours behind, and morning lowland bus routes will be announced as needed. Morning preschool classes will be cancelled. Afternoon lowland bus routes will be announced by noon for afternoon runts.

When two-hour late start days occur on a scheduled early release day, early release activities will be cancelled and a regular afternoon school schedule will be followed throughout the district.

Announcement for lowland routes will be made 6am for morning bus routes and by noon for afternoon bus routes. If your area is not listed, pick up times and locations are normal.

If families feel that driving a personal vehicle to bus pick-up points is unsafe, students affected by lowland routes who cannot safely travel to bus pick up points will have an excused absence.
