Dear Parents /Guardians:

The school year is flying by and the sunny days of summer will soon give way to the crisp air of a soon-arriving winter. I wanted to share the procedure the district uses in regards to cancelling school due to inclement weather. The decision to cancel school is usually made by 6:00 A.M. In the event that we would make the decision to dismiss early due to inclement weather, please tune into the TV or radio stations listed below.    The school system uses a variety of sources of information to determine whether to close schools, or dismiss early. These sources include actual physical inspection of road and school conditions by me, MODOT, an analysis from the National Weather Service and contact local superintendents and our bus contractor Apple Bus Company.

Local media sources are then contacted to ensure that all parents and students are aware of the cancellation. Please note that the following TV/Radio stations that will be contacted. We will also use School Messenger and Facebook to notify you.

·       KCTV 5
