  • After evaluating all information, the Superintendent makes a decision by 5:30 a.m. Radio and television stations are immediately notified whether or not school will be in session for broadcast on the 6:00 a.m. news. 

Early Closing of School due to emergency conditions

  • After students arrive at school, they are seldom released early. However, if conditions at school warrant early release or if weather and/or road conditions deteriorate, it may be necessary to dismiss school early to get students home safely.
