School Closing Procedures
When bad weather or an emergency situation occurs before school starts in
the morning, the Supervisor of Transportation and the District Administrator
will make a decision to do one of the following:
• Hold school at the regular time.
• Delay the start of the school day by two hours.
• Cancel school and all extra curricular events for the day.
When bad weather or an emergency situation occurs after students have begun the school day, the Transportation Supervisor and the District Administrator will assess the situation. If a decision is made to close school early, the radio and television stations will be called.
It is important to keep the telephone lines open when school is called off or delayed because a great number of phone calls must be made in a short time to get the information to bus drivers and the media. Phone calls to school officials, radio and television stations, the school bus garage, or school offices to inquire about school closings or delays should not be made. Please discuss with your children what to do if school is unexpectedly dismissed early. Any preparations made in advance will make a hectic time run a little smoother.
Please listen to these stations when inclement weather arises or check their websites.
The decision to delay or close school is made as soon as possible and the stations are notified promptly. Please refrain from calling the radio stations and the schools as it ties up the phone for necessary calls.
