Please understand we are both part of a school district and a school of choice that is dependent on private transportation. We have students traveling from across the entire district, and the weather conditions may vary. Even if the school district is open, but you feel the road conditions are unsafe, please feel free to keep your child at home and call the school attendance line to report his/her absence. If during the day the weather turns poor, and safety is a concern to you, please feel free to sign your child out early, even if the school district as a whole has not adjusted the ending time for school.
