Winter Weather

As we continue through the winter season and the possibility of inclement weather, here is a reminder of our procedures when determining to close school due to weather and also how you will be notified.

Here’s How You Will Be Notified of Weather-Related School Closures:

  • Email to parents/guardians and staff


  • Phone call and text message to parents/guardians and staff


  • Watch local television news stations for alerts



When Hazardous Weather Threatens:

  • The Superintendent will consider input from the Transportation Manager, Buildings and Grounds Manager, area superintendents, and information from local meteorologists and online weather resources. While there's no official temperature that closes schools, several factors will be considered, including road conditions.


  • The District must make one decision that is appropriate for more than 7,500 students and 1,500 staff members. We recognize that this decision may not always fit with individual circumstances.


If schools remain open, please remember that the final decision is up to the parent/guardian. If you decide to keep your child home because of the weather, please contact your child's school.
