School Closure Procedures
Severe weather, power outages or other conditions may require schools to start late, cancel classes or close early. The decision to cancel classes or delay the start of school will be made by 5:30 a.m.
Schools will close unless the majority of the students in the district can travel safely. Weather on the mountains may be hazardous, while roads in town are safe for travel.
If schools are forced to close during the school day, every effort is made to contact parents. Notification will be sent out on the district ListServ, through local media and posted on the website and hotlines. Parents are encouraged to develop a plan for their child in the event of an early closure.
