School Closure Information

November 1, 2021
School Delay/Closure Due to Weather

Dear Parents/Guardians:

If you are questioning whether school will be open or closed because of weather conditions, watch the Spokane TV stations or listen to radio stations in Wenatchee (KPQ 560 AM) and Moses Lake (KWIQ 100.5 FM) (KDRM 99.3 FM) or (KBSN 1470 AM). These TV and radio stations have given special emphasis toward reporting all school closures periodically from 6:00am to 8:00am. Our schools will be open unless local TV stations, radio stations, the District’s website, and social media accounts announce otherwise. Parents will receive a phone call through the District's caller early in the morning after a decision has been made.

If a “delayed start” or “school closure is necessary, one of the following will be posted to District media outlets:

A 2-hour delay because of weather on Tuesday thru Friday – All school start times will begin 2 hours later than normal.

  • All buses will operate 2 hours later than normal.
  • Morning and afternoon preschool classes are cancelled.
  • Breakfast will NOT be offered.
  • There will be NO zero-hour classes.


A delay because of weather on a MONDAY
will be 1-hour later than normal because Mondays are already a 1-hour late start. 

  • All buses will operate 1 hour later than a normal Monday.
  • Morning and afternoon preschool classes are cancelled.
  • Breakfast will NOT be offered.
  • There will be NO zero-hour classes.
School buildings are closed due to weather:
  • All Middle School after school activities are cancelled.
  • Morning and afternoon preschool classes are cancelled.
  • High School after school activities are to be determined.

NOTE: A school closure due to weather will be “made up” later in the year.

If it is necessary for the District to close schools after school has begun, the District will use its media outlets, including calling, to notify parents in advance of the closure. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION IS UP-TO-DATE IN SKYWARD.

 

Sincerely,

Tim Payne
Superintendent
