School closings and delays in the 2020-21 school year

With spooky weather possible just before Halloween, let’s take a moment to clarify how school delays, early dismissals and snow days will look like in the 2020-21 school year.

Just like any other year, the decision to delay or cancel school will be made by 5:45 a.m., and communicated out to families via School Messenger, the district’s website and the district’s media partners.

Students who are learning remotely will follow the same delay, closure or dismissal schedule as their in-person peers.

In other words,

  • If there is a one-hour delay, remote students will follow a one-hour delay schedule.
  • If there is a two-hour delay, remote students will follow a two-hour delay schedule.
  • If students are dismissed early due to inclement weather, remote instruction will also end early.
  • If school is cancelled due to inclement weather, there will not be any instruction on that day, either remote or in-person.
