Announcements of Schools Closing, Delayed Opening or Early Closing


The district will use SchoolMessenger to communicate information about school closings, delayed openings, and early closings.  You will receive a recorded phone message on all parent/guardian telephone numbers listed in the student data base system.

All-Day Closings - School Closing Number 574

If for any reason school will be closed for the entire day, notice will be announced and published on the media as explained below. Days missed will be made up at the end of the year according to the calendar approved by the Board of Education.

Emergency Early Closing 


If school is dismissed early due to weather or an emergency:

1. PM kindergarten and PM preschool will be cancelled. 
2. All parents should provide supervision for children if they will not be home when students arrive. 

Delayed Opening


If there is a need for a delayed opening, school will open 1½ hours (90 minutes) later than usual.  If a delayed opening is announced, please follow the times listed. Buses will pick up students an hour and a half later than the normal pick-up time. Bus students should arrive at their bus stops 1 ½ hours later than normal.  (For example: If your student normally arrives at the bus stop at 8:15 a.m., in the event of a delayed opening they should arrive approximately 1 ½ hours later, at 9:45 a.m.)
If it is necessary to make up a day of school, kindergarten and/or preschool parents will be notified at a later date. 

 

CER Childcare will open at 8:30 a.m. for those students signed up for the CER before school program.
