Cancellations and Delays

  • Inclement Weather – Cancellations, Dismissals, and Closings

    The safety of our students and staff is always the deciding factor when it comes to Cancellations, Dismissals, and Closings. The District Office will monitor approaching inclement weather.  The Superintendent or his designee will make decisions on closing or delaying school based on information provided by the city and county officials, local law enforcement, meteorologists, and other school districts. Despite our best efforts, we know that things change in a matter of minutes. Families must ultimately determine, individually, if they are comfortable sending their student to school in inclement weather. 

    Communication Tools Utilzed
    • Infinite Campus: In the event of a school cancellation or delay, Infinite Campus will be the primary communication tool used by the district. Families will receive communication in the form of a phone call, email, and, after opting in, a text message.
