School Closures and Delays

The following is an explanation of district announcements used during inclement weather or other emergency situations. You can find Limited Transportation Routes that may be used during inclement weather here.

Closed or Schools ClosedNo schools are in session in the Puyallup School District. This applies only to the day that the announcement is made. There is no out-of-district transportation. The district will communicate whether or not after-school and evening activities will be held.

Two-Hour Late Start: 

Monday - All Grades 
Elementary, junior high, high school, Options, Gateway, and Advance students will start school one hour later than their regular Monday late start bell schedules. Lunches will be served. Students will be dismissed at their normal Monday release times. Extended day preschool and a.m. Summit will not be held. 

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday - All Grades In the event of a weather-related or other two-hour late start on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, bus pick-up schedules will be two hours late, and buses will try to operate on all normal routes. Classes will dismiss at the normal time unless otherwise announced.

  • There will be no morning (a.m.) or extended day preschool;
  • Afternoon (p.m.) preschool will begin and end school on regular time;
  • There will be no morning (a.m.) Summit at Sparks Stadium;
