WEATHER & SCHOOL

1 day ago

With winter weather here, please be sure your contact information is up to date with us so that calls made via School Messenger will reach you in a timely manner in the event school is closed, delayed or released early. 

Also, tune into the following radio and television stations for information about school closings due to inclement weather or other emergency situations:Radio stations: WMAM (AM 570), WLST (FM 95.1), WSFQ (FM 96.3), WHYB (FM 103.7), WAGN (AM 1340);Television stations:  Channel 2 (WBAY), Channel 5 (WFRV), Channel 11 (WLUK) and Channel 26 (WGBA).

In making inclement weather decisions, we consult with the District’s transportation contractor, Westlund Bus, regarding road conditions.  We also consider the current weather conditions as well as the forecasted weather for the remainder of the day.  The decision to close, delay the start or dismiss early always takes into account the safety of the all students. However, the district boundaries include rural and city roads so conditions throughout the district may vary greatly.  

If the need arises for an early dismissal, please ensure your child(ren) know their care plans. We want to ensure no child is locked out of their home if an early dismissal becomes necessary.

As a parent/guardian, if you question the weather and road conditions, you may choose to keep your child(ren) home. Should you choose to keep your child(ren) home, please notify the appropriate schools with a phone call or a written note.  The District will honor this notification as an “excused” absence.
