Inclement Weather Policy

We have approximately 50% of our students from each Towns and Clay Counties.  As a result, we follow both school schedules for delays/cancellations.  This means that if either cancels, we are out also.  If either delays, we will be on a delay.  Please listen to WKRK, look at our website or facebook page, or sign up for text alerts to stay informed.  

In the case of a 2 hour delay, students can be dropped off at 9:45am and are tardy after 10am.  Staff should report at 9:30am.  

Make up days will be determined based on the percentage of students who complete their daily goals while out of school.  We make every effort to send home student goals and PACEs in anticipation of an approaching weather system.  Students are expected to complete assigned goals as if they were present at school.
