Inclement Weather Procedures:

As we all know, winter weather in Kansas is never predictable!  It is inevitable that we will be 
having some winter weather in the next few months. Please know that the school district staff take 
the responsibility for determining the closing of school very seriously. Student safety is our 
number one priority.  The roads are driven very early in the morning to determine if they are safe 
for school bus and personal vehicle travel.

When weather threatens the safe operation of our buses, and the roads are not safe for students and 
staff, school may need to be canceled for the day.  As soon as this decision is made, we will make 
efforts to notify parents, students, and staff.

When school is canceled, the district will communicate with families and employees in the following 
manner:

1)  School Closing will be televised on Channel #4, #5, #9, and #41.

2)  The website banner on the front page will be updated to indicate “No School”.
District website URL:  www.usd416.org

3)  Parents and staff will receive an email and phone message via Skyward.  It is important that 
the school has the most current contact information for each family and employee in Skyward.  
Please take the time to review your contact information in Skyward and update accordingly.

We understand the burden of not having school can place on a family as they must find appropriate 
daycare opportunities. We do not take canceling school lightly, but safety has to be our number one 
priority. We will try and give parents as much notice as possible if school will be canceled. 
Sometimes, Mother Nature does not cooperate and a decision has to be made with not much notice.  
Parents are the final decision-makers when it comes to sending their student to school on inclement 
weather days.

As a district and community, we want to keep everyone safe. We appreciate your support in helping 
us fulfill our number one priority in keeping our students and staff safe during inclement weather.
