WINTER WEATHER GUIDELINES

 

 Winter weather is here 

BE PREPARED IF WE CANCEL SCHOOL 

Our schools provide students with a safe and stable place to learn. We understand that canceling school may cause some families hardships related to finding child care. 

We consider closing school when: 

Wind chill is at ‐35°F (-37°C) or colder at 6:30 a.m. 

➤ More than 6 inches of snow falls in 12 hours 

➤ More than 8 inches of snow falls in 24 hours 

We try to tell parents: 

By 6:00 p.m. the day before the cancellation, OR 

➤ By 5:30 a.m. the day of the cancellation 

We announce cancellations by: 

Phone calls | Texts | Website | Facebook | Twitter | Radio | TV

Outdoor Activities
 
Although we try our best to ensure our students have time for play, particularly during recess, we sometimes have to cancel it due to inclement weather. During the winter we will have indoor recess if the outside temperature or the windchill is -10 F or -23 C.  Of course we will also respect the medical need of our students to remain inside even if the temperature and windchill are higher.
