Emergency Dismissal Drill coming up -> Wednesday, September 16

on September 4, 2020

The District will hold an early dismissal drill on Wednesday, Sept. 16. This is a required “go home early” drill.

Dismissal times will be 15 minutes earlier than regularly scheduled dismissal times. 

During the course of the school year, there are times when weather conditions such as snow storms, freezing rain and other emergencies can result in early dismissal of students and/or school closings. The decision to close school and dismiss students ahead of schedule is never taken lightly, but made with careful consideration for the safety and welfare of our students and staff.

Family planning for Early Dismissals

Parents are encouraged to develop early dismissal plans for their children and review them together regularly. The order of dismissal is intended to ensure that older siblings of elementary school children arrive home first. If an early closing results in young children arriving home to no supervision, it is suggested that you make emergency plans with a “sitter,” neighbor or friend. Please DO NOT come to school to pick up your child during an early dismissal. The safest place for your child in the event of a weather-related emergency is on the school bus.

More information about emergency closings and delays, including a listing of radio stations for changes in the school schedule, is available on the Emergency Closings and Delays page.
