Inclement Weather Guidelines

Winter weather can mean changes to the regular operations of our district and schools. We thank you in advance for your patience during times of inclement weather.

Inclement Weather Reminders:

Buses may be delayed returning students home. Our buses are prepared for snowy conditions and our drivers are well-trained to transport students in snowy conditions. Making sure that students return home safely is our top priority.

The district doesn't send students home early because it is snowing. Many of our families do not have an adult who can be home early to provide supervision for their child(ren) on short notice.

Afternoon and evening activities may be cancelled. The decision whether to cancel after-school activities will be made as early in the afternoon as possible.

School delays and cancellations - Road conditions in the district can vary depending on where you live. Our district makes the decision to delay or cancel school based on if we believe our buses can safely transport children. If school is delayed or cancelled due to inclement weather, every effort is made to make the decision by approximately 5:30am. If conditions change after the decision is made to delay school, it is possible that the district may cancel school. An alert will be sent as soon as possible. Please be sure your contact information is current and accurate with your child’s school. 

We understand a parent or guardian's decision to pick up their child(ren) early from school or to not send them to school due to inclement weather. Please remember that research shows that students who miss fewer than 2 days each month are more likely to demonstrate academic success.

Make sure to...

  • allow for extra time to get where you need to go.
  • dress children in warm coats, boots, hats and gloves.
  • be prepared for delays and closures and have a care plan in place for children, should you need to report to your employment.
  • Drive Safe!

Guias para clima inclemente

El clima invernal significa cambios a nuestra operaciones regulares en nuestro distrito y escuelas. Les agradecemos de antemano, por you paciencia durantes los tiempos de clima inclemente.

Recordatorios de clima inclemente:

Los autobuses pueden ser retrasados al regreso a casa. Nuestros autobuses están preparados para condiciones de nieve y están bien entrenados para transportar los estudiantes en condiciones de nieve. Asegurarnos que los estudiantes lleguen a casa a salvo es nuestra mayor prioridad.

El distrito no manda a los estudiantes a casa temprano por que este nevando. Muchas de nuestras familias no tienen un adulto en casa temprano que pueda prestar supervisión a los niños en tan corto tiempo de aviso.

Actividades de tarde y noche podrían ser canceladas. La decisión de cancelar actividades después de la escuela será tomada lo más temprano posible.

Retrasos escolares y cancelaciones – Condiciones de la carretera pueden variar dependiendo donde viva. Nuestro distrito toma la decisión de retrasar o cancelar las clases basado en si creemos que nuestros autobuses pueden transportar con seguridad a los niños.

Entendemos la decisión de un padre o tutor de recoger a sus hijos temprano o de no enviarlos a la escuela por causa del clima inclemente. Por favor recuerde que las investigaciones demuestran que estudiantes que pierden menos de 2 días cada mes son más propensos a demostrar éxito académico.

Asegurese de...

  • prestarse más tiempo para llegar donde tiene que ir.
  • vestir los niños en abrigos cálidos, botas, gorros y guantes.
  • Estar preparados para retrasos y cierres y tener un plan de cuidados para los niño, si tuviera que trabajar.
  • Conduzca con cuidado!
