For the 19-20 school year, we will use the SchoolMessenger communication system to keep our families updated. It gives us the ability to contact you by phone & text in the event of emergency weather closings and delayed starts. Make sure your contact information is up-to-date with your school and to opt-in to receive text messages, text "Yes" to 67587.

We use three guiding principles to make decisions about postponing or closing schools for inclement weather:

  • Time spent in the classroom is integral to preparing students for academic success.
  • Students and staff must be able to get to and from school safely.
  • Parents and guardians must have adequate time to make arrangements for transportation or childcare.

School closings or delays are communicated widely through our website, social media, SchoolMessenger communication system, and local news outlets.

Learn more about our inclement weather procedures here.
