Emergency Closings

  • When necessary, road conditions are evaluated early each day by the Director of Transportation and a decision to close the schools because of inclement weather will be made generally before 5:30 AM. The only exception to this rule is when school is in session and would be shortened because weather conditions dictate early dismissal for safe transportation to occur.
