  • How to get Info on Weather-Related Schedule Changes

    The safety and well-being of our students is our highest priority. When conditions dictate unscheduled closings, delays, or early dismissals are in the best interest of student safety, the district will announce information via an automated messaging system, on its website and social media feeds. These district-operated notification tools are the primary mechanisms by which schedule change information will be communicated.
