Emergency Closing Procedures

It never seems soon enough to communicate our plan concerning inclement weather or a school building heating or power emergency. Should the need arise, school closing will be communicated in a variety of ways:

General Guidelines

  •   We review wind chill chart from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
    •   If the air temperature reaches -10°, we will strongly consider closing school.
      •   If a sustained wind chill of between -25° and -30° is forecast, we will strongly consider closing school.
        •   We will generally make a decision and communicate with parents around 5:30 a.m.
          •   A status update will be provided to parents the evening before.
            •   If schools are closed, all school-related activities are cancelled.
