School Closing Policy

When winter weather is on the way and we will again be faced with the possibility of closing schools, scheduling make-up days, informing employees about reporting, etc.

The decision to close school, delay opening school or dismiss school early is based on varying weather conditions (i.e. extreme cold and wind chill, high winds and snow, icy roads, etc.) The primary reason school is closed is for the safety of the children; however, many people can be affected by the decision.

When School is Closed

Parents will be contacted via the Alert Now system by email and or telephone calls regarding school closings.  This information will also be announced on the following radio and television stations: WCCO (AM 830), WCCO-Channel 4, KSTP-Channel 5, or KARE-Channel 11.. Many television stations offer a school closing notice service through email. Normally decisions are called in by 6:00 a.m., but there can be delays in getting through or having the announcement read.

All school activities are assumed to be canceled when school is closed and with an early dismissal.. This includes practices, rehearsals, open gym, games, concerts, Community Education, etc.

School closings will be heard on the following radio and television stations:
