Weather/Closing Information Links

 Now, before bad weather or an emergency arises, is the time to make necessary arrangements for your children.

The primary method to notify all district employees, parents, and students of school closing is by radio and television. Listen to local stations for information.



District #3 will:
  • Make inclement weather decision(s) based on students’ safety.
  • Make the decision as to whether school will be open and announce no later than 6:00 A.M. by calling radio stations and TV stations.
  • Not penalize students if parents keep them home or pick them up from school on questionable days.
In the event the decision made earlier is to open schools and the storm worsens unexpectedly, District #3 will:
  • Inform the same media if schools decide to dismiss students early.
  • Keep buildings open as long as necessary to evacuate all students safely.
Parents are expected to:
  • Be responsible for the custody of children.
  • Decide whether or not to send children to school on threatening, stormy days.
  • Listen for an early dismissal announcement.
  • Make sure children know what to do and where to go if dismissed early.
  • Know that students may be dismissed earlier than normal.
  • Not rely on telephones to make last-minute arrangements for their children (lines tend to malfunction during storms).

Two Hour Late Start

If an emergency closing is declared by the superintendent for part of the day only, a two-hour late start may be used.
  • Whenever feasible, a two-hour late start will be announced by 5:30 A.M. through the same channels as a school closure.
  • These channels include television, radio, and the district’s website. When district officials announce a two-hour late start, all start times, bus pickup times and other standard schedules will be moved back by two hours.
