Preparing for Inclement Weather
Beaverton School District Inclement Weather Information
When we have inclement weather, school schedules could be affected. School closure or delayed start decisions will typically be communicated to media outlets and posted on the district website, ParentSquare and social media by 5:30 a.m. The District makes decisions based on the ability to operate school buses safely, the ability of parents and students to drive safely, and the ability of students to walk safely. Decisions are made for the entire District. However, we encourage families to make transportation and attendance decisions for their children based on their own assessment of travel conditions at their locations.
For the latest inclement weather information:
- Check the district website. A page pop-up will be posted if there’s a change in school
- The BSD Public Safety webpage has information about inclement weather procedures and snow routes.
- Follow us on: Twitter @BeavertonSD, Facebook @BeavertonSchoolDistrict or Instagram @beavertonsd
- Tune into media outlets for updates.
