School buses line up to drop students off during a snow event.

The forecast this week calls for potentially hazardous winter conditions and we are regularly checking the National Weather Service forecast. As of 4 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 27, there has been no decision to cancel school.

Per district protocol, we make decisions about cold-weather cancellations by 6:30 p.m. the night before based on the forecast for 6 a.m. the following morning. Decisions about cancellations or delayed starts for snow are made by 5 a.m. the day of. Throughout the week, we will keep families updated on our website, social media, phone calls and  television stations.

The safety of our students is our top priority. As always, we respect families’ decisions to keep their children at home. For full details about our weather delay and cancellation guidelines, visit our School Cancellations and Delayed Starts Guidelines.
