Inclement Weather Policy

Wednesday, January 02, 2019

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.
