Winter weather may impact school operations resulting in delays, early releases, and possible closure. Here is what you need to know and possible changes that may occur.
How Does the District Determine If the Roads are Safe?
When winter weather is in the forecast, at approximately 3:30 a.m., designated transportation staff drive roads throughout the district to determine the ability to safely transport students.
Our district has varying terrain that needs to be taken into consideration. Staff assess major and minor roads with anticipated weather patterns.
Between 4 and 4:45 a.m., the Assistant Superintendent of Operations and School Support and the Superintendent’s Office determines the feasibility of safely transporting students to and from school based on information received from the district's snow patrol.
When at all possible, decisions regarding school delays or closures are made by 5 a.m.
Right At School will align operations with district decisions on closures, delays, or early dismissals. This alignment will eliminate confusion for families and ensure the safety of staff and students in the event of inclement weather.

Each family should have a plan covering what to do when children arrive home early due to an emergency or weather-related situation.
Please develop a plan and practice it with your child. If you will not be home, instruct your child as to where they should go in the event of an early dismissal due to emergency conditions.
