INCLEMENT WEATHER PROCEDURES

To help the community understand the districts policy during inclement weather the following information  is meant to assist with understanding our procedures.  When our weather takes a turn for the worse  our Transportation team has the responsibility of investigating bus routes, walk routes, and bike routes. Transportation department will also examine weather outlets, such as NOAA and AccuWeather.  This will help provide accurate information to the Superintendent for a final decision.  However, deteriorating conditions can   happen at a blink of an eye.  We encourage all parents of our students along with our staff to make sure they have signed up for FlashAlert.  FlashAlert systems distribute emergency messages, such as weather closure information, early release, and breaking news.  Please examine the information below and use the link  to our different web sites for further direction.
