What does the Information mean?


School closure

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 cancelled.

Two-Hour Delay

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.
  • There is no morning kindergarten or PM kindergarten.
  • Middle schools will start at 11:30 a.m. on every day, including Wednesdays.
  • Sabin Schellenberg Professional Technical Center classes begin at 12:25 p.m.
  • High schools start two hours late, starting with second period
  • Staff members should report at regular times or as soon as they can arrive safely.   
Snow Routes

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.

Early Release and Activities

When schools must close early, activities (including child care) will be canceled and early transportation home will be arranged.

Kindergarten

When there is a two-hour delay, all kindergarten classes will be canceled (both morning and afternoon).
 
When schools close early because of inclement weather, no afternoon kindergarten sessions will be held.
 
In the event of a two-hour early release, morning kindergarten students will ride home with the older students on the regular routes.
