WINTER WEATHER REMINDERS
If inclement weather forces District leaders to cancel in-person instruction during the 2022-23 school year, the first two instances would result in no-school days for students. Any subsequent weather-related closures would result in the District implementing a flex-learning day. Students in grades 5-12 would use their devices to access learning plans on Schoology. Families with students in grades K-4 would receive learning plans via email from teachers that morning. Click here to read how the District will communicate a weather-related closure to families and learn how to update your contact information in Infinite Campus to ensure you receive timely updates and information from the District.
