• What about late starts on Wednesdays? 

    If school needs to be delayed due to inclement weather on a late-start Wednesday, procedures and start times are shown below, depending upon the length of the delay.

    In the event of a weather delay on a late-start Wednesday, professional development for staff will be cancelled.

    If it is reported that Ankeny Schools will have a one-hour weather delay on a Wednesday, buildings will open and classes will begin one hour later than on a usual Wednesday. In this event, use the following schedule:

School Building Building Opens Classes Begin
6-7 Middle Schools 9:30 AM 10:30 AM
8-9 Middle Schools 9:20 AM 10:20 AM
10-12 High Schools 9:30 AM 10:25 AM
    • To ensure clarity, on any day in which we have a weather delay or early dismissal, a schedule of building times for that day will be posted on the district website home page.

    We recommend that parents and guardians keep a copy of the above chart for reference.
