Inclement Weather/Closing Learning Options

Two Hour Delay

  • A two-hour day may be called if the District feels additional time will allow for the safe transportation of our students to school. If the decision is made for a two-hour delay, bus transportation will arrive two hours after their normally scheduled time, car rider drop will take place two hours after the normal arrival time and the school day will begin two hours after the normally scheduled start time.

Early Dismissal

  • There may be some rare occasions where it will be necessary to dismiss school early. On these days, we will communicate the specific dismissal schedule for each building if that event arrises.

Flexible Instruction Day

  • All school buildings will be closed, however, students will be provided school work to complete independently through Schoology or printed materials. This will eliminate the need to make up days at the end of the school year. 
  • Teachers will be available through their usual electronic communication methods during school hours to support students.

Remote Learning

  • All school buildings will be closed, however, students and staff will complete the school day from home through Schoology and Zoom. This will eliminate the need to make up days at the end of the school year. Remote Learning Days will follow the normally scheduled Cycle Day listed on the District Calendar. 
  • Additional communication will be sent to students by their school/teachers with directions on accessing their teachers and assignments. Students should log in as directed by their school for attendance purposes. 

School Cancelled

  •  All school buildings will be closed and students will make up the inclement weather day at the end of the school year.
