School Cancellation – Late Starts – Early Dismissals

  • In the event of severe weather or some other unforeseen event, it may become necessary to cancel school for the entire day, delay the start of the school day or cancel school after the school day has begun and send students home earlier than the normal time. 

    Serious consideration is given prior to dismissing students early as many children may be returning to an empty household.  It is extremely important for families with younger children to have a pre-arranged plan of what to do if the school is let out early.

    The decision to cancel, delay or dismiss early will be communicated through the following: 

    Television Stations

    • Channel 7-1 (WSAW)
    • Channel 9-1 (WAOW)
    • Channel 13-1 (WEAU)

    Radio Stations

    • WAXX / WAYY

    Please listen to one of the above stations for announcements and/or to view a list of school closings.  Please do not call the schools or the bus contractor.  This will keep the telephone lines open between the school and bus contractor for decision-making communications.

    In addition to the above radio and tv stations, parents/guardians will be directly notified via phone or text message with the district's Infinite Campus Instant Parent Contact program.
