Is school a go? How will I know?

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.

  • Visit FlashAlert. You can also subscribe to receive automated e-mail or text alerts.
  • Television and radio stations.
  • Transportation Information Line: Pre-recorded information on weather-related delays or closures: 360-654-2024.
  • Email to families from the district.
  • LWSD mobile app.
  • Families who included a phone number, designated as a cell phone, during registration will receive a text message at that number from the district.
  • Visit the District website and Facebook page for updates.
  • To avoid phone calls in the early morning hours, we do not use our automated calling system. If no messages are posted, schools are open and operating on normal schedules.
