Winter Weather Guidelines
The days are shorter. The weather is colder. It’s the time of year when snow and ice can cause HSSD to close, delay opening, or dismiss early. Here is what you can expect when inclement weather arrives:
In addition, if inclement weather causes HSSD to close during the 2022-23 school year, we will plan to have a traditional snow day. Should circumstances arise, a virtual learning day will only be used as necessary to meet the annual instructional minutes requirement.
