School Closing Information

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. Communication is then distributed as follows:

1. The School and District Websites are updated with an emergency message on each web page as soon as the decision is made.

2. All major media outlets (TV and Radio) are notified to include:

3. Each household will receive a phone call, text, and email message via SchoolMessenger, typically between 5:30am – 5:45am.


All of this information, and more, can be found on the School Closing Information page on the district website.
