Snow Coming?

While we do not know exactly when our first snow will come, this is probably as good a time as any to remind you of our snow day procedure:

STEP ONE - PROACTIVE

  1. The Superintendent and Transportation Director study the weather forecast daily to have foresight on any upcoming weather events.


STEP TWO - ROAD CHECKS

  1. The Superintendent and Transportation Director consult the night prior to a forecasted severe weather event.

  2. The Transportation Director commences driving school district roads at 1:30am.

  3. The Transportation Director calls the Superintendent at 4:00am to discuss conditions.

    1. The Transportation Director may ask for support in driving the roads.

    2. If the report is severe enough the Superintendent will make the call as early as 4:30am.

    3. The Superintendent may ask the Transportation Director to continue driving and/or consult with local school districts to see what they are seeing (Davenport and Medical Lake).

    4. The Superintendent may ask the Transportation Director to call County Officials to inquire about road clearing timeline/schedule.


STEP THREE - DECISION

  1. The Superintendent will make a decision based on student and bus driver safety first and foremost.

  2. The Superintendent may call a 2 HOUR DELAY or SCHOOL CLOSURE based on the weather forecast for the day and/or road conditions.

  3. The Superintendent will make this decision PRIOR to 6am when at all possible to do so.

  4. NOTIFICATIONS:

    1. School Messenger system

    2. Facebook

    3. Parent Email

    4. Local News receive our communication

  5. PARENTS: Questions or feedback on the decision? Please call the Superintendent at (509) 796-2701.


PLEASE NOTE:

  • Breakfast will not be served on a day with a 2-hour delay

  • “Snow Routes” may be used in unique circumstances

  • We have a relatively large school district. On top of general road conditions we are looking for:

    • Drifting snow in the south and northwest portions of our district.

    • Maintenance of the hills in the north portion of our district.
