District Emergency Protocols
Weather Delays / Closings
The decision to change school schedules is made after careful review of information collected from the local Police, Highway, transportation company, and the School Maintenance Departments. Road conditions, sidewalk status, precipitation, temperatures and forecasts are all considered when making a determination to delay or close school. In some circumstances, a delay may be upgraded to a school closing. Information related to delayed openings and school closures is also broadcasted on the television and radio stations below, typically by 5:30 a.m. As always, the safety of our children is the priority factor in all decision making.
School Messenger Alerts
The District uses an electronic communication system called SchoolMessenger to manage notifications. The system is used to make phone calls, and send emails and texts, about school closings/delays, emergencies, alerts, and general notifications.
