What happens with a 2-Hour delay?
If the district calls a 2-hour delay, there is still the possibility it could change to 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 service and morning preschool will be canceled. Afternoon preschool would still operate during a 2-hour delay. 

What happens when 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 unless otherwise announced.

When will the district makeup any days they are closed?

The school calendar marks days that are set as makeup days. The school district will use those days first and then add any additional needed days on after the scheduled last day of the school year. The school district will send out information reminding parents and guardians about the makeup dates.
