What You Need To Know About School Closures & Delays
What You Need To Know About School Closures & Delays
Heidi Wells
Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Winter is upon us and this may cause College Place Public Schools to close or delay school in the event of snow, ice or other weather related emergencies.

We will make every effort to announce closures or delays by 6:00 a.m. If conditions change or worsen after the decision is made to delay school, it is possible that the district may cancel school. We will try to make a final decision by 7:30 a.m., if changed, an update and alert will be sent out per normal communications.

If there is no mention on the district website of delays or closures, schools are running on time. 

Road conditions in the district can vary depending on where you live. We support a parent’s or guardian’s decision to pick their child up early or to not send their child to school. Absences will be considered excused with a signed note.

2-Hour Delay 
If the district calls a 2-hour delay, there is still the possibility it could change to a closure if conditions worsen. Please continue to check the website frequently for any updates.                        

If school is delayed, buses will run on a 2-hour delay from normal pick-up times and breakfast will be canceled. 

Athletics, After-School Activities and Other School Events 
If school is closed, all out-of-district transportation, meetings, field trips, after-school activities, practices, and games will be canceled for the day unless otherwise announced.

All evening meetings and events scheduled to take place in district facilities will also be canceled.
