School Closings and Inclement Weather                                                                                                                   

School may be cancelled for reasons such as a utility outage within the building, icy roads and or severe weather.  When the Superintendent and/or Principal believe the safety of students and employees is threatened by severe weather, a decision to close school will be made as early in the day as possible.  These types of school closing announcements will be sent via the Honeywell Instant Alert System, as well as broadcast on local television and radio stations.  In the event the district does not close school and conditions in your area are bad, or you think it is unsafe, you, as a parent or guardian, should make your own decision about sending your child to school.  If you will be keeping your child home when school is in session, please call the school office and notify them of your decision.  Thank you.
