School Delays & Closures Information

With the arrival of winter weather, we would like to remind parents/families about our district policy. If school is delayed or closed, the information is posted by 6:00 AM on:

  • District Website
  • District Facebook page
  • Mobile App
  • Automated calling system
  • Regional media outlets (newspaper online, radio, tv stations)

The location with the most accurate information to confirm a delay/closure is the district website. On occasion, media inaccurately reports school delay/closure information. If schools must close early, notification is given using the same method.

If no notice is posted, school is running on regular schedule. If you have questions about the policy, please call the District Office or your child’s school.

Bussing Incident - January 12, 2017

January 12, 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I would like to apologize for the lack of timely communication this morning regarding the delay in bussing.

In the future, if we are experiencing problems with busses not starting during inclement weather, we will send out a message via School Messenger, Facebook, etc. to all households by 5:30am and will go on a 2-hour delay schedule.  If we continue to have issues and cannot pick up students in a timely manner, we will cancel school for the day and send out an additional notification. 

Realizing that arranging for childcare on short notice can be an issue, I try to give as much advanced notification to families in the event of a 2-hour delay or closure, however, in an emergency situation when busses will not start we will follow the above protocol.  Students who may have missed school today due to the bussing issue will have their absence excused.

Again, I sincerely apologize for the lack of timely communication and any inconvenience today’s bussing issues may have caused.

Dirk Dirksen
