Inclement Weather Plans

  • In the event of bad weather, the superintendent will do one one of the following: (1) determine a virtual snow day, (2)close schools, (3) delay opening, or (4) dismiss early:

    Virtual snow day-
    Students will participate in online learning during the snow day.  Schedules and communication will be provided by the school and classroom teacher.

    School closing – On any morning when ice or snow has fallen, listen to the local radio or TV station for announcements.  Information will be on School Messenger, the GoWPS! app, local radio and television stations, and the school system website.  If conditions are deteriorating during the early morning, a delay may be announced first, followed by a closing of schools. If possible, the decision will be announced by 6:30 a.m. On days when school is closed for inclement weather, the day will be a virtual learning day.  Students will continue their education online.

    Delayed opening – If the superintendent feels that the road conditions may improve sufficiently during the morning, he will announce a delayed opening of either one or two hours.   Dismissal will be at the regular time.


    Early dismissal – If weather conditions worsen during the day, the school may dismiss early.  Please make arrangements for your child in the event of early dismissals.  Students who are normally car riders will be dismissed 10 minutes earlier than other students.
