In Case of Emergency
Emergency information, transportation cancellations and school closures will be posted on this website as well as communicated by the radio stations listed below.
On occasion, it may be necessary to cancel student transportation services. Every attempt is made to provide information about transportation cancellations by the 7:00 a.m. news. Some cancellations will only be for specific bus routes, and therefore, you are encouraged to know your child’s bus route. Unless otherwise advised, schools will remain open when buses are cancelled in order to accommodate students who get to school via other means.
Transportation Problems During the School Day:
If snow or other weather conditions prevent buses from leaving school, students will be kept at the school until they can be released to a parent or designate. Adequate staff will be retained at the school to provide supervision.
Early Dismissal During the School Day:
Unsafe weather or road conditions, mechanical or electrical breakdown of essential school facilities or equipment, power failure, and more may require early dismissal. Prior to dismissal, the principals of elementary schools shall ensure that there is a responsible person at home who can care for your child or have been advised of alternate arrangements for your child.
