During Emergencies

  • Students and staff in each school will follow a plan developed with local law enforcement and emergency agencies.
  • Parents should review the School District website and Flash Alert for weather notices.
  • Parents will receive a direct text, email, and automated phone call.
  • If students and staff must be evacuated from school, parents will be instructed where to pick up their children.

School Closure Procedures

Severe weather, power outages, or other conditions may require schools to start late, cancel classes, or close early. The goal is to decide to cancel classes or delay the start of school by 5:30 a.m., but that time may vary.

Schools will close unless the majority of the students in the district can travel safely. Weather in the mountains may be hazardous, while roads in town are safe for travel.

The School District will inform parents if there will be a closure or delay.
