School Closing and Delay Information
The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. As such, inclement weather or an unplanned community event such as a power outage, water main break, etc., may necessitate the district to close schools, delay the start of school, and/or dismiss students early. Information on closings, delays, or early dismissals will be posted to the district's website and Facebook pages as soon as a decision is made. Additionally, the district will also make use of local media outlets to announce schedule changes due to inclement weather or some other community event. If the delay or closing can be determined the evening before, all attempts will be made to contact the media at that time.
