Inclement Weather Policy
Weather conditions may make it necessary to close schools for the safety of students and staff. Announcements of this nature will be posted on the main page of the district website, as soon as the information becomes available. Telephone or text blasts will be sent if possible to relay school closings. Parents and students are advised to listen to local television and radio stations for a current news report.
No announcements will be made when schools are to remain open.
When possible, the decision is made during the evening prior to the day of closing. If so, the information will be provided to the media for broadcast on the 10 p.m. television and radio newscasts.
If the decision is made after 10 p.m. on the night prior to the day of closing, the information will be provided to radio and television stations for morning newscasts. Occasionally, an early release of classes already in session may be necessary if it appears that weather conditions are becoming worse and may pose hazards to students' health and safety.
School closing information is available from local TV and radio stations as well as the District's website.
