arrow Previous bar Next arrow

In order to provide for the safety of students and staff, the Board of Trustees authorizes the Superintendent or designee to close a school site, to change the regular school day schedule, or to take any necessary action when adverse weather conditions or other emergencies warrant.

The Superintendent or designee shall establish a system for informing students and parents/guardians when school buses are not operating or when the school day schedule is changed or the school is closed.

In the event that students arrive at school when the school day schedule changes or the schedule changes after school has begun, the Superintendent or designee shall ensure that supervision is provided in accordance with the procedures specified in the District's emergency and disaster preparedness plan.

The Superintendent or designee may provide a means to compensate for lost instructional time later during the year. Students and parents/guardians shall receive timely advanced notice of any resulting changes in the school calendar or school day schedule.
