All Students K-12

The following procedures will be observed when school is closed due to weather.

  • When school is not in session, a decision to close schools will be made the night before, if possible, but not later than 7:00 a.m.
  • When the weather is too severe to open school at the normally scheduled time, but is improving, a decision to have a late start may be made. In this case, school will be delayed for two hours. Bus pick-up and school opening times will be exactly two hours later than normal.
  • When school is in session and the decision is made to close schools, dismissal times will be set to coincide with the anticipated arrival of buses.

Families will be notified via Skylert. Communication will be sent via email and/or phone. In each instance, the community will be informed by KYMN (1080 AM) and WCCO (830 AM) radio stations. If weather conditions are poor or worsening, please listen to one of these stations. You may also check the district website for updates.

Elementary K-5

It is necessary for us to know where students should be sent in the event school would be closed during the school day. A form requesting this information will be sent home the first week of school. It is essential that it be returned promptly.
