Weather-Related School Closing Information

Many families ask about the criteria for determining weather-related school closings, delays or early releases. The foremost factor in the decision to cancel school is student safety. Influencers can include snow accumulations, weather forecasts, road conditions, and wind chill temperatures. The district uses weather information from the AccuWeather at www.accuweather.com.
