What factors influence the district's decision to cancel school?
We try to keep our schools open as scheduled as much as possible. However, there are times when weather conditions cause us to cancel school for the safety of our 4,000 plus students. We do not make that decision lightly because we understand canceling school can create difficulties for families. There are a number of things to consider when determining whether to have school during inclement weather.

* Time spent in the classroom is integral to preparing students for academic success.

* Students and staff must be able to get to and from school safely.

* Parents and guardians must have adequate time to arrange for transportation or childcare.
Who makes the decision to cancel school due to bad weather?
A group comprised of individuals representing transportation, facilities and administration evaluate relevant factors and make a recommendation to the superintendent, who makes the decision whether to close school.
