Cancellations

Information regarding school closings or schedule changes due to extreme weather will be posted on the cancellation page of the Blair Oaks district website as soon as a decision is made. Typically, a decision to close school is made just prior to 6:00 AM on the morning in question. On days that our district is closed, our broadcast telephone messaging system will call all district families at their primary contact number at approximately 6:00 AM to announce the closing. The Blair Oaks R-II School District will post school closings or schedule changes on the local radio and television stations.

Attendance Goals

We are excited about the partnership with you to strengthen our students and our school. Attendance is important because students are more likely to succeed in academics when they attend school consistently. Learning is a progressive activity; each day's lessons build upon those of the previous day(s).


  • If your student feels sick during the school day, please encourage them to visit the nurse. The nurse will notify home if the student needs to leave for the day.
  • If your student is absent due to a medical appointment, please bring a letter from the provider documenting the appointment.
  • Please notify the office before 9:00 a.m. when a student is going to be late, absent, or released early.


We believe our parents make it easier for students to attend school by having a positive attitude about learning and education. We appreciate those who do their best to make appointments outside the school day. Your support is what makes our school one of excellence!
