Weather-Related Closings, Delays, Dismissals

  • In the event of severe weather, schools may be closed for the entire day, begin later, or dismiss early.

    When making these decisions, we consult a variety of sources and work with area superintendents to make the most informed decision possible. Despite our best efforts, we know that things change in a matter of minutes. Families must ultimately determine, individually, if they are comfortable sending their child to school in inclement weather.

Emergency Situations

  • If you have an emergency situation with your child, please contact your child’s school directly. Contact information for individual schools is available under the Schools menu above.

    If there is a district-wide emergency situation, please do not telephone your child’s school as the phone lines may be otherwise occupied. Updated information on district-wide events will be communicated to staff and families through direct email and phone notifications, posted on the district’s website, and shared on district social media accounts as time allows.
