As weather patterns shift during the colder months, there will be early mornings when decisions must be made about school delay or cancellation.
While it is our hope that school can be in session daily, it is possible that on-site instruction may be delayed or cancelled from time to time due to dangerous weather and/or road conditions. The safety of students and staff is always the top priority. In the event of cancellation of on-site instruction, students K-12 should expect virtual instruction. The severity of the weather emergency will determine who should report to work and the status of any on-site programming, services, or activities.
Decisions will be communicated to families and staff as quickly as possible via ParentSquare, web alert, social media, and local news stations. Depending on the timing of the weather, it is our hope that a decision can be made no later than 5:30 AM.
The inclement weather will be categorized as either Level 1 or Level 2.
This will determine the status of programming and staffing. A two-hour delay is also possible.
Level 1: K-12 on-site instruction cancelled. Students will receive virtual instruction. There is no transportation for a Level 1 closure. Preschool will be in session on-site. Preschool sites include ELC Amy Beverland, ELC Brook Park, ELC Mary Castle, ELC Winding Ridge, Forest Glen, & Skiles Test.
Level 2: K-12 on-site instruction cancelled. Students will receive virtual instruction. There is no transportation for a Level 2 closure. Preschool is cancelled.
In the event of a 2-hour delay, everything is pushed back two hours. Kindergarten (ELCs) & Elementary buildings will begin at 10 AM. Middle & High School buildings will begin at 10:50 AM.
In the event of a 2-hour delay, Before & After Care will operate during normal hours.
We would like for students to be in school every day, but respect the decision of parents to keep their child home in the event of inclement weather. If you choose to keep your child home and school is in session, please contact the school attendance line to inform of your decision.
