School Closing Guidelines

The Superintendent is responsible for the decision as to when school is open or closed due to inclement weather, emergencies or during the time when students are present or not. What makes closing schools difficult are the circumstances surrounding the decision. The Superintendent uses the safety of the students and employees as the first priority. But that is not the only criteria.

Should you have any questions about this, please contact your school principal or the superintendent's office at your earliest convenience.
