Closing and Delays

Should weather or an emergency situation result in the closing or delay of school, the district uses several methods to notify parents.

Snow Days

For the winter weather season, we will review our procedures for inclement weather and potential school cancellations. Our school calendar includes the flexibility to allow for cancellations without the need for students to make the days up at the end of the year. In the event that we experience an excess of the allotted snow days, the district may add the missed day(s) to the end of the school year at the Superintendent’s discretion.

Parent Notification System

Text and email messages are sent via Blackboard with the phone numbers and email addresses in Infinite Campus.  This means that it is very important to keep your information updated in the Infinite Campus system so that we can contact you in an emergency.

  • For morning closings before school starts, the system uses the primary contact phone number and email address in Infinite Campus.
  • For closings and early dismissals after school has begun, the system uses all contact numbers and emails in Infinite Campus, including emergency contacts.

Certain messages may be sent to specific grades or buildings instead of district-wide. For example, a message about canceling evening activities may only be sent to parents of secondary students if no other classes or schedules are affected.
