Information for Snow Days

During an emergency, the district's first priority is to ensure student and staff safety. We work closely with local municipalities and emergency services to assess the situation, gather accurate information, and implement emergency safety protocols.

The district will try to determine school closures due to inclement weather by 6:30 a.m. Updates will be delivered using social media and school and district websites.

No radio or television announcement will be made saying that schools are open. Only school closures will be announced by the media. To reach as many people as possible - as quickly as possible - we work closely with our local media to share information. Listen to local radio stations and follow local news outlets online to also get information about the impact of severe weather or emergencies in our schools.

If snowfall begins while school is in session, in most circumstances, schools will remain OPEN until the end of the school day. If schools are open, and you wish to keep your child home due to weather conditions, you may do so. Please let your school know of this decision.

Parents/guardians are responsible for their child's safe travel to school. If possible, we encourage parents to walk their children to school in poor weather conditions.

Any district wide closure will be decided by 6:30 a.m. at the latest and announced via:

如果在学校上开始出降雪天气 ,多数情况下,学校会保持开放直到放学。如果学校开着,但由于天气原因您希望将孩子留在家中,是可以的。请让学校知道您的决定。

监护负责孩子上学的交通安全。 如有可能,我鼓励父母在劣的天气条件下陪伴孩子步行来校上
