Inclement Weather ****
Inclement Weather Procedures:
It is inevitable that we will be having some winter weather in the next few months. Please know that the school district staff, along with the manager of our bus company, takes 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 travel.
When weather threatens the safe operation of our buses and there is need to cancel school for the day, almost all area radio stations and television channels, including Channels 4, 5, 9, 41 and 62 carry USD 416 school closing information. In addition to radio and television, we will post this alert in the following places:
Sometimes, when the call is made to cancel school, the stations/or channels do not always get the information broadcast in a timely manner. This is regrettable, but we will do everything that we can to be sure all parents are notified in a timely manner.
Parents are the final decision-maker when it comes to sending your students to school on inclement weather days.
