Closures & Delays

Bad weather and other emergencies sometimes result in changes to school or bus schedules. During bad weather, we make decisions about school closures or delays by 6 a.m. Soon after, we call, email and post information to our websites and social media. If you don't hear from us, it means schools and buses are operating normally.

Types of Changes

The following changes may be made to school schedules:

Schools Closure

All classes, meetings, daycare in schools, field trips, after school/evening activities and community schools classes will be canceled. There will not be out-of-district transportation.

Delay: Two Hours Late

Buses pick up students at their regular locations, but two hours later than normal. On occasion, we also limit bus service when we delay school. We will dismiss students at the regular time unless otherwise announced. If a school is delayed on a Thursday morning, we will dismiss schools at the regular weekday dismissal time (no early release).

In some cases, kindergarten, preschool, out-of-district transportation, and after school student or community activities may be canceled.

Early Dismissal

In rare situations, such as a utility failure or a community incident, we may need to cancel classes early. In some cases, we may also cancel athletic and extracurricular events at affected schools. Your child’s school will inform you if extracurricular activities are also canceled.
