EARLY DISMISSAL

If serious storm conditions or other emergency situations develop during the day, the district will monitor the situation and advise affected schools and the transportation department as soon as possible, of a decision to dismiss school early. When this decision is made, this information will be posted on this web site, recorded on the applicable area hotline and sent to the media as soon as possible.

LATE DISMISSAL

In case of dangerous weather warnings or other dangerous conditions, a school may hold students past their dismissal time for safety reasons. This information will be posted on this web site, recorded on the applicable hotline, and sent to the radio and television stations as soon as possible.

IMPORTANT

Parents are urged to make contingency plans for their child(ren) in the event of an emergency. Arrangements should be made for the child(ren) to go to a neighbor's house, or to have access to the home with directions for contacting a parent.

In no case will an elementary school child be released to a person without proper identification and clearance from the school office.

We understand the some parents may make a different decision for their families. If you feel the weather is too severe to send your child to school, please call your school's attendance line and let them know your child will be staying home. The absence will be excused.
