How We Communicate Weather-Related Delays and Closures

If the district needs to close or delay the start of the school day because of the weather, the announcement will be made using the following outlets:

In some inclement weather situations, the district’s ability to send and your ability to receive automated messages may be impacted by power outages. Please check all the above outlets for weather closing and delays in the chance this occurs. 

If you believe you should have received an automated email/text message from the district when there was a delay or closing, please contact your school’s main office to ensure your student’s Emergency Contact Information is up to date.
