Atascadero USD | BP 6118 Instruction
The Board of Trustees places a high priority on safety and the prevention of injury. The Board realizes that fog and weather conditions are sometimes so severe that it is dangerous for students and employees to come to school, whether they arrive by vehicle or on foot.
Because adverse weather conditions regularly occur at predictable times of the year, the Superintendent or designee may establish alternative schoolday schedules as necessary.
The Superintendent or designee may close school or change the regular schoolday schedule when dangerous conditions occur. When the schoolday schedule is changed, the schools shall remain open during regular school hours for students who arrive on foot or whose parents/ guardians bring them in private vehicles.
The Superintendent or designee shall establish a system for informing students and parents/guardians when school buses are not operating and when the schoolday schedule is changed or school closed because of adverse weather conditions.
If necessary, the Superintendent or designee may provide a means to compensate for lost instruction time later during the year. Students and parents/guardians shall receive timely advance notice of any resulting changes in the school calendar or schoolday schedule.
