Winter Weather Reminders

It is that time of year again when we can expect to have snow, cold temperatures and windchill that makes travel difficult and sometimes even dangerous.  As in the past, the district will be monitoring these situations closely and trying to make certain that travel conditions are safe for the students.

In the event that schools needs to start later than normal, or be cancelled, please check the local television and radio stations for the announcements.  We will again attempt to send email messages out through the student information management system, JMC, but we have been experiencing some emails "bouncing back" to us lately.  I would make certain that you get your information from the local television or radio announcements. I try to make a decision so that these announcements can be on the local media outlets prior to 6:00 AM.

My highest priority is the safety of all of the students, but I am not able to check every road in the district prior to making a decision.  Please know that there may be a time when there will be school and you may not feel comfortable sending your child to school that day.  I understand completely and support your decision to keep your child at home that day.  Again, student safety is my highest priority.  If this happens, please call the school office and let us know.  Let's have a safe winter season!
