How We Decide to Delay or Cancel School due to Inclement Weather
In the event of disruptions to transportation services (school delayed start or closing) due to weather, the school district will notify the public through the emergency notification system and local media. Specific bus routes affected would be specified in the announcements.
The safety of students is the primary consideration for any decision regarding snow routes, delayed starts, school cancellations, or district closure. The superintendent consults with district facilities, transportation staff, and regional agencies to make informed decisions regarding risk factors.
- Safety considerations include student drivers, student access to bus stops, students walking to/from school, and all other aspects of transportation of students to school.
- The suitability of our facilities for occupation is carefully considered as well as the condition of local infrastructure.
Families and secondary students will be contacted if school is delayed or canceled through the contact information provided on registration forms. You may also opt-in to receive information through the FlashAlert notification system.

Parents/guardians are encouraged to make transportation and attendance decisions for their child(ren) based on their own assessment of travel conditions at their location. Should the superintendent decide to cancel school, possible make up days may be used to make up for lost instructional time.
The district will determine if school bus snow routes will be activated to accommodate the existing weather condition. These routes may be used for snow, ice, wind, flooding, or other conditions.
