Severe Weather Conditions

When severe weather causes hazardous driving conditions or any other conditions that might delay school opening or cause schools to be closed, parents and students are encouraged to check the district website and social media pages, and local television stations for current news reports. Information will be disseminated as soon as possible. If schools are closed due to severe or inclement weather, the district website should be updated by 6 a.m. on the day in question.

School closing information will also be available from these resources:

  • District website
  • School Messenger automated phone notification system
  • Notify Email Notification
  • Notify Text Notification
  • Facebook 
  • Twitter
  • Instagram

The district considers several factors before deciding to close schools, delay school start times, or dismiss early:

  • The health, safety, and welfare of students and staff
  • The transportation of students and staff
  • The disruption to the home when school starts late dismisses early or is closed

Please note that campuses and departments will remain open with regularly-scheduled hours unless notified otherwise. 

The Chief Communications Officer will notify the following television stations if there will be any changes in the normal operating procedures of the district:
