Wind Chill Advisory/Warning – Protocol to Determine Late Start/No School

The district is implementing a new protocol for wind chill advisories/warnings. It is our hope that this will provide consistency when deciding whether to have late starts and/or no school days. The protocol is as follows:

If the National Weather Service issues a wind chill ADVISORY that would be in effect at the start of the school day, there will be a two-hour late start.

If the National Weather Service issues a wind chill WARNING in effect at the start of the day, there will be a 2-hour late start. However, if the wind chill warning will not be lifted by 10:30 a.m. there will be no school that day.

(School messenger will still be utilized for late start, early dismissal, and no school announcements.)

As always, please visit our School Closings, Delays, and Alerts page for any changes and/or other pertinent information.
