The District and Lamers Bus Company (the District's transportation contractor) have a cooperative procedure used when it is necessary to consider closing schools because of inclement weather. Factors taken into consideration will include: the present state of weather, predicted weather conditions, temperature, wind, visibility and condition of the roads. The District, with the assistance of Lamers, will gather information on these factors before collaboratively making a decision to close schools. Local tv and radio stations will then be notified of our emergency closings and a text message will be sent out.
If it is determined during the school day that it is necessary to dismiss early because of inclement weather, the news media will be notified. Parents are asked to have alternate plans for their children's supervision and care in the event school is closed due to inclement weather. This is especially important for young children.
Please sign up for text message notifications or tune into local tv and radio stations for school closing information.
Parents have the option of keeping their children at home if they believe that the weather conditions merit such action. If parents choose to keep their children home due to inclement weather conditions, the absence will be recorded as "excused."
