Weather, bus, and closure info
Late Start or Closed Information
We will send an email, text message, post information on our website and on KOMO's school closure site linked here.
When possible we will notify you the night before if we are going to start late or be closed for the day.
If you don't hear from us by 6am you can ASSUME that we are on time and all bus routes are running as normal, there is NO need to call the school and check!
In rare circumstances conditions can change after 6am, such as the power going out. If that happens will will immediately send out an "urgent" message to families through our normal process.
Inclement Weather Schedule
When we have emergency events we have two options:
- Late Start - school will start at 10:30am (including Mondays)
- Closed for the day - if it is unsafe to drive on the roads, power is out, etc.
If we have a late start day due to the weather, the bus will be at your child's normal stop two hours later than their normal pickup time. If the route is modified, we will notify you when we send out the delay notice.
What if we have late start on our regular Monday late start days? School will start at 10:30 as described above. Expect the bus to arrive 45 minutes later than your normal late start Monday pick up time.
Closed for the Day - Make Up Days
If we have to close for the day, we are required by state law to make up the days. We build the make up days into our calendar.
2023-2024 Makeup Days: February 16th, May 24th and June 14, 17-21. We will notify families a couple of weeks prior to any makeup days so you can plan your calendar accordingly.
Breakfast is NOT served on late start days!
What if I can't get my student to school or to the alternative bus stop?
How to Get Notified
If you are not getting text messages for our newsletter and would like to sign up, please check out the directions at the bottom of this newsletter.
This only works if:
1) your cell number is already on file with the district
2) you have opted in
3) you have indicated it is your primary number
Alternatively you can email Mr. Cravy with your child's name AND your cell number, he will update your information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Bus Routes Change when it's flooding
Fir Island and other areas prone to flooding will be modified if there are restrictions from the county or if there is water over the roadway. If there are significant changes to your student's route we will send out a text to notify you.
If you have excessive water over your roadway, our buses will not be able to pickup your student at their regular stop. Students will be picked up at the closest intersection to your stop.
If it is not safe for you to get your child to the new pickup location, please keep yourself and your family safe. Please use Pickup Patrol to report your child's absence and indicate it is weather related.
