School Closures

School Closures

Along with winter comes the possibility that school may be closed due to weather conditions.

How the decision is made:

1)      The director of transportation looks at the air temperature between 5:30 and 6:30 a.m.

2)      The superintendent is contacted then a decision is made in consultation with the County Road Department and various individuals around the school district area.

3)      School is canceled when the temperature reaches minus 20 degrees.

4)      Wind chill factor may be taken into consideration.

How will you know if school is cancelled?

1)      When the decision is made to close schools, the superintendent will notify the Caribou County Sheriff’s Office and a Alert Sense message will be sent out via text message and email. (You must sign up for these notifications)

2)      Phone calls are made to radio and TV stations; KBRV and KIDK

3)      If you drive into the parking lot and only a few cars are present, school has probably been cancelled.

4)      If questionable weather conditions exist, please do not drop off your children without checking to make sure school is in session.  You may call the district office at 425-3984.

A “late start” may be implemented.

1)      A “late start” school day will be implemented when weather conditions are permissible.  School will begin at 10:00 a.m. and dismissed at the normal time.

2)      “Late start” will be announced via Alert Sense, radio, and TV stations by 6:45 a.m.

3)      If weather conditions do not improve and a “late start” doesn’t continue to be feasible, school cancellation will be announced by 9:30 a.m. via Alert Sense, radio, and TV.

4)      In case of a “late start”, morning kindergarten and preschool will be cancelled.

How does a school closure effect activities?

1)      In most cases, all activities will be cancelled.  However, consideration concerning after school activities will be made on a case by case basis taking into consideration the safety of our students.
