Emergency School-Closing Information
Each year, parents are asked to complete an emergency release form to provide contact
information in the event that school is dismissed early because of severe weather or another
emergency. Please make sure that all emergency information is current and up-to-date. Don’t
forget to notify the school if there is a change of address or phone number.
The Board of Trustees authorizes the Superintendent to close school when it is in the best
interest of the students and District. This is generally done for safety purposes or times of
great tragedy. Local media will be notified and may be consulted when these events occur
or threaten to occur (bad weather).

for transportation until authorized by the Superintendent or a designee. Civil Defense vehicles,
ambulances, firefighting units, police, and other authorized vehicles shall have priority in the
vicinity of the school.
