A 2-hour delayed start for schools may be used when appropriate. The decision will be made based on the extended forecast for the day and police/city road advisories. By allowing snow crews extra time for clearing roads, the District may decide to hold a shortened school day, which does not count as a calamity day. In cases where the weather continues to deteriorate, the District may decide to cancel school altogether after the two hour delay.
The school district will use the same notification system for the 2-hour delayed start as is used to cancel school; this includes the H-Alert (school phone system), and TV and radio station announcements. We will also post the information on our website.
Should school be delayed by 2 hours, elementary school students, K-5, will be served a no-choice lunch due to limited preparation. Students with allergies will receive the appropriate foods. Lunch times will be adjusted to accommodate all grade levels.
We are encouraging parents to make plans now in order to be adequately prepared should the district announce a 2-hour delayed school start because of weather, or cancel school altogether. Please take into consideration any advanced childcare arrangements that may be needed.
HCER before school childcare (Explorer Zone) will not be held on a 2-hour delay start day.
