Early Dismissal

If conditions, such as weather, necessitate an early dismissal, the following procedures will be followed:

  • Radio and television stations will be notified.
  • Children at private schools will be brought back to the District.
  • In most instances, High School students will be sent home first so that older students will be home when younger brothers/sisters arrive.
  • Elementary students will be sent home.
  • If the early dismissal takes place near lunch time, we will try to give the students lunch before they are dismissed.

Every parent is asked to discuss with their children, particularly elementary students, alternate homes or plans in the event the child must be sent home and a responsible person is not present. This should be done in September and repeated as often as the parent thinks necessary.
