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 start, school cancellation or district closure.
- 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.
- In any situation where safety may be compromised, district office leadership works with appropriate district departments and/or regional agencies to make informed decisions regarding risk factors.
Families 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 your school’s email list or the FlashAlert notification system. Learn about our emergency and school closure communications HERE.
If inclement weather should occur, 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.
If there are no delays in the school day, snow route notifications are provided via FlashAlert, the district home page, emergency hotline, and on social media.
