School Delays and Closures

Most days students will likely receive instruction like normal. In the event of adverse weather or an emergency, there may be a two hour late start as outlined in school bell schedules. Bell schedules may be found here. If severe enough, students would receive remote instruction rather than coming to campus, similar to an AIS day. Please remember, all students, K - 12 should take their district issued devices to school and home daily to ensure they are prepared for changes to scheduling.

Every reasonable effort will be made to maintain normal operations, but decision to make any scheduling changes for the day will be determined by 6:00 AM and announced by 6:30 AM. Decisions are based on the ability to safely transport students to school and input from other districts. If weather and road conditions are predicted to improve, a two-hour delay will be announced and will NOT be a remote learning day. 

If the District opts to switch to a remote learning day, the announcement will be made that in-person school is canceled for the day. No changes will occur on these days for students enrolled in Continuous Remote Instruction, or for students who were already scheduled for an AIS day. 

  1. Standard instructional day. No announcement will be made.
  2. Late Start. Announcement will be made. Students scheduled to attend class on campus will follow the late start schedule for the day.
  3. Remote Instruction. Announcement will be made. Treated like an AIS day. Students will log in to their usually scheduled classes for the day. Teachers will provide students with instructions and plans for the day so that they may participate in remote learning through Canvas or Seesaw.
