Winter Weather Info

Weather Information

Winter is upon us! As we are in the season for cold weather, we would like to remind you that there is no regularly scheduled adult supervision at school buildings before 7:50 AM. (Exception: Students that ride the shuttle buses may be on the school site (as necessary) prior to 7:50 a.m. and middle school students should not arrive before 7:45 a.m., doors open at 7:50 a.m.) Except in rainy or sub-zero conditions, buildings are generally not open before 8:00 AM.

Please be certain your children are properly attired for colder temperatures with a winter coat, hat, and gloves.  Elementary students also need snow pants, boots, and weather proof gloves for recess and be sure that the extra clothes you have in your lockers are weather appropriate.

It is also important for bus riders to have proper winter attire. While it has not happened in recent memory, the possibility exists a bus could break down while on a route. As such it is important the children be warmly dressed in case a bus break down occurs.

Finally, especially for elementary and middle school students, please mark your child’s name on their coat, gloves, and hat. District employees (especially bus drivers) regularly find lost articles of clothing, and with no name on the clothing we have no way of returning the items to their owner.  Thank you!

Cancellations and early closing information will be given on the following TV stations:  KCRG TV-Channel 9; KWWL TV-Channel  7, and KGAN TV—Channel 2. The following radio stations will also carry school closing information:  KZIA/Z102.9 FM, 1600 AM; KDST (99.3 FM); KMCH (94.7 FM).
