What does the Information mean?
When schools are closed for a day due to an emergency, weather or safety factors, the school building will not be used for day care, evening events, classes or activities. Unless otherwise stated, all evening meetings and activities are canceled.
Schools will be opened, but two hours late. School buses will operate as close to two hours behind schedule as road conditions will allow. THERE MAY BE A DELAY FOR SPECIFIC SCHOOLS OR FOR CERTAIN SCHOOL LEVELS (SUCH AS FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS ONLY). When there is a two-hour delay, day care services begin at 8:30 a.m.
Bus snow routes may differ from regular routes. School bus drivers and the individual schools will provide students and parents with information about snow route bus stops. The Transportation Department also has this information.
