2 Hour Delay Procedure
TWO-HOUR DELAY - NEW FOR 2018-19
The use of a two-hour delayed school opening may be utilized when the additional two (2) hours would allow for inclement weather to rise to an acceptable level. With the option of the two-hour delay, we will more likely be able to have school and avoid using as many calamity days.
A major part of a two-hour delay school opening involves the transportation of students to schools. Under a two-hour delay schedule, all schools will begin the day two (2) hours later than the regular starting time. The school day will end at the usual time. Students receiving school bus transportation should go to their normal bus stop location two (2) hours later than their regular pick-up time.
As with school closings, the two-hour delay to the start of the school day will be announced through the local media and our telephone message system to parents. If for any reason the two-hour delay is not sufficient to ensure safe travel, the District will close for the entire day. If this is the case, a second call will be made via our telephone messaging service.
