Inclement Weather

Ensuring that students are able to get to school on time every day means that they need to be able to travel safely between home and school. On inclement weather days, we announce emergency closings or delays no later than 5 a.m. on the impacted day. When possible, we attempt to make the notification by 10 p.m. on the night prior to the weather event. If there is no announcement by 5 a.m. on the impacted day, school is in session.

We use three guiding principles to make decisions about postponing or closing schools for inclement weather:

  • Time spent in the classroom is integral to preparing students for academic success.
  • Students and staff must be able to get to and from school safely.
  • Parents and guardians must have adequate time to make arrangements for transportation or childcare.

School closings or delays are communicated widely through our website, social media, text message, and local news outlets.

Inclement weather closures may include the following: 

  • Schools and district offices closed
  • Schools closed and district offices open
  • Schools closed and district offices open with delayed start
  • Evening activities canceled. Note that evening activities at any site are canceled on days when schools are closed, even if conditions improve.

thor guard lightning detection

We use a lightning detection system called Thor Guard at 12 sites throughout the district to predict the risk of a lightning strike in the immediate area.

Parents can take advantage of this technology, as it can be helpful when out and about around town for after-school activities or kids' sporting events. Visit the link below to access Thor Guard and find the current forecast, radar, and lightning strike potential.
