When winter weather hits, our top priority is the safety of students and staff. District administrators begin evaluating conditions in and around our area beginning as early as 3:30 a.m. on days we experience severe weather. The decision to delay or close schools is usually made by 5:30 a.m.
LWSD uses these tools to communicate schedule changes to families:

When snow or ice is on the road, school buses will use Limited Transportation Routes. Learn more on our Inclement Weather page. Elementary students who are dropped off at an alternate stop must have an adult meet them at the bus stop.
When buses are on Limited Transportation Routes, no out-of-district transportation will be provided.
