The winter months sometimes bring weather conditions that require school schedule delays or closure. The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. 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 school is usually made by 5:30 a.m.
The District uses a number of tools to communicate schedule changes to families.
