Severe Weather Procedures

  • From snow storms to tornadoes, our first priority is always the safety of our students and employees. Communication with parents is crucial when weather disrupts our school schedule. Click here to review the steps we'll take to make decisions and notify parents in any type of severe weather.


    Anyone may access information about school closings on the home page of the district website, on the district Facebook page and through local and area television and radio stations. The district's free mobile app is also a good way to receive update alerts (be sure to enable push notification) and can be found in the app store on your device. In the event of severe weather requiring a “take cover” situation, students will be housed in what is considered the safest part of the school building. Parents must wait until after the severe weather threat has passed before attempting to pick up children from school.


    During severe weather season, tornadoes and strong thunderstorms pose a risk to students, families and the entire community. Each of our schools practices severe storms drills three times during the year in preparation of an actual emergency. Maps of tornado drill routes are posted in all rooms.
