• School Closing Procedures                                          

     

    When severe weather causes hazardous driving conditions or any other conditions exist that might delay the opening of school or cause schools to be closed, parents and students are encouraged to check the district website and social media pages and local television stations for current news reports. Information will be disseminated as soon as possible. If schools will be closed due to severe or inclement weather, the district website will be updated by 6 a.m. on the day in question.

    School closing information will also be available from these resources:

      • District website
      • School Messenger automated phone notification system
      • Skyward Parent Access
      • Facebook (include as a link)
      • Twitter

    The district considers several factors before deciding to close schools, delay school start times or dismiss early:

      • The health, safety and welfare of students and staff
      • The transportation of students and staff
      • The disruption to the home when school starts late, dismisses early or is closed

    Please note that campuses and departments will remain open with regularly-scheduled hours unless notified otherwise. 

    The Assistant Superintendent for HR/PR will notify the following television stations if there will be any changes in the normal operating procedures of the district:
