Procedures Regarding School Closing Due to Inclement Weather

When school is closed due to inclement weather, the district notifies parents, students and staff in a variety of ways. While often redundant, student safety is our primary concern requiring a blanketed approach to informing all families. Typically, a decision to close school is made before 5:30am in order to give parents, students and the bus company enough time to respond.

In the event school is closed, all families will receive a SchoolMessenger call and email as soon as a decision is made. Text messages are also available through SchoolMessenger. If you have yet to do so, we encourage families to opt into the district's SMS messaging system here. Please read about our school closing approach and cold weather factors that influence the decision-making on this page of our website.
