Snow make-up day and more information around today's closure
Dear Edmonds School District Families,
While we were eager to be back learning today, winter weather and unsafe road conditions resulted in the cancellation of school.
Please see below for important information on the snow make-up day and more information around today’s school closure.
Snow make-up day: Tuesday, Feb. 22
Roads by my home were fine, why did you cancel school?
Because it takes buses, walkers, bikers and drivers to get all of our students to school safely, we rely on our transportation and facilities teams to survey our schools and routes to make sure all students can get to school safely. Roads and sidewalks on many of our routes were covered in slush and ice this morning.
It’s also important to note that our school district serves five different cities and parts of unincorporated Snohomish County. Therefore, weather conditions may be different throughout the district and weather closures are a district-wide decision.
Why did the district not notify me by 6 a.m. of schools closing?
Technical error resulted in some families not receiving delay or closure messages
We want to apologize for a technical error that occurred that resulted in many district families not receiving our delay and closure messages. We are confident the issue has been resolved and all families should receive future district communications.
In addition, text messages require an opt in to receive them. If you have not opted into text messaging, please text “Yes” to 67587. Note: your cell phone number must be in our records attached to a student. For more information visit: bit.ly/ESDtext
