School Closing

When inclement weather, unsafe roads, or another emergency prompts a decision to close school or delay the start of school, the following media will be notified:

Radio: KSIB, KMA, KCSI/KOAK,WHO
Television: Channels 5, 8, 13

Every effort will be made to have a decision by 6:30 a.m. When it is evident that school will be closed the following day, notification will be given before 11:00 p.m the prior evening.

On occasion, the start of school may be delayed by 1-2 hours. On such occasions, the buses will run accordingly--1or 2 hours late.

Parents, please share with your children any plan you have concerning what they are to do and where they are to go if school is dismissed during the middle of the day. It is in your child's best interest to have a plan developed before severe weather closes school. This will alleviate undue stress on your child and yourself.

It is also a help to school officials to let your child know where they are to go in advance, as it is hectic when an early dismissal is announced. Trying to answer the phone and get messages to classrooms is stressful and can be avoided with a plan already in place.

Late Start Information
Decisions will be made by 6:30 am if at all possible.
Any time there is a delay in the start of school, NO breakfast will be served.
Please see your children have breakfast at home before leaving for school.
