The Superintendent of Schools makes the final weather related decisions based on a number of factors, including student safety, bus transportation, road conditions, and wind chill temperature. The decision to close school is often difficult and weather events can occur at any time. If a decision cannot be made the night before, the District will typically make a decision between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m. in the next morning. Please keep in mind that when cancelling school for weather related reasons, the District will post notifications in the order noted below.
