School Closings & Cancellations
Careful consideration goes into deciding whether students can safely be transported to school on a snowy morning. Roads and sidewalks are inspected, and weather forecasts and outdoor temperatures are monitored. Information is then reported to the Superintendent, who makes a determination about whether to cancel classes for the day. Should adverse weather conditions or other emergency necessitate a school schedule change, a variety of methods are used to notify parents and staff.
