Late Start
A late start schedule could enable the school district to have school after a two-hour delay. This would allow road crews and mother nature to help make it safe for students, staff, and families to travel to school. Late-start schedules will be determined by building principals.

Snow Days
A school day may be canceled due to winter weather conditions. When school days are canceled, all school activities and events are canceled for that day, including facility rentals. The first and second snow day will not be made up. The third and fourth snow days will be made up using our build in snow days. April 18 will be an in-session school day if there are three snow days used. April 15 will be an in-session school day if there are four snow days used.

How will you know when school is cancelled or a late start will be implemented due to inclement weather?
