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 canceled due to severe weather/road conditions
