School Closures

Waitsburg School District

Emergency Weather Procedures

The district will make every attempt to advise the community and staff of the impact of weather/road conditions on the school day as early in the day as possible.   Under normal situations, these decisions will be made no later than 6:30 a.m.   The district will notify radio stations first and then principals and supervisors.  Should it be necessary to revise a decision due to changes in weather conditions (i.e. change from a delayed start to a cancellation), the decision to do so will be made no later than 7:30 a.m.

The district has established the following procedures/practices for situations of severe or hazardous weather/road conditions.

The general procedure deals with the following conditions:

  • Delayed Start:      There will be a delay (usually two hours) in the start of the school.
  • Early Dismissal:  Weather/road conditions which deem it necessary to dismiss students early as a safety measure to have buses or other vehicles off the roads.
  • Cancellation:        When school is cancelled due to severe weather/road conditions
Where to find information about delays/closures/changes:

  • The information will be shared with media outlets.
  • The information will also be posted on our district website and Facebook.
  • If you have an email address in our Skyward system, you will be notified. 
As soon as possible, delays and cancellations will be posted on the District’s homepage.  Meanwhile on  bad weather days, please remember to watch KNDU, KVEW, KIMA/ KEPR or
