506.12 School Closing Due to Weather or Emergency Conditions

506.12          

SCHOOL CLOSING DUE TO WEATHER OR EMERGENCY CONDITIONS

The superintendent is responsible for closing schools, delaying starting times, dismissing early, or keeping school open beyond the regular school day in the case of extreme weather or emergency conditions.

The final decision in determining “unsafe” conditions necessitating an emergency school closing or late start will be made by the superintendent or designee, using the best judgment that is possible with the information available.

All decisions regarding this policy will be announced to local and regional media for broadcast to district patrons.

All buildings will be included when school is delayed in starting, dismissed early, or closed (canceled) because of severe weather conditions that cause travel to be unsafe.
