• Information about delayed openings or school closings will be posted on the district website at approximately 6:00 A.M. Please check with individual schools regarding each schools method of notification & bus stop adjustments due to weather concerns.

    Delayed Opening Policy

    If a delayed opening is declared, the fire department sirens will not sound, and parents should obtain information from the radio, television reports and from Connect-ED automated calls. Bus schedules will be adjusted accordingly depending on the delay. All morning programs & services are canceled during delayed openings. Students attending non-public schools will be equally affected by a delayed opening decision.
