School Delays & Closures Information
With the arrival of winter weather, we would like to remind parents/families about our district policy. If school is delayed or closed, the information is posted by 6:00 AM on:
- District Website
- District Facebook page
- Mobile App
- Automated calling system
- Regional media outlets (newspaper online, radio, tv stations)
The location with the most accurate information to confirm a delay/closure is the district website. On occasion, media inaccurately reports school delay/closure information. If schools must close early, notification is given using the same method.
If no notice is posted, school is running on regular schedule. If you have questions about the policy, please call the District Office or your child’s school.
