Early Closing Information

Due to emergencies, such as inclement weather, electrical outages, and other unforeseen circumstances, it is sometimes necessary to make changes to the school day for the safety of our students. Please take the time before an emergency arises to develop a contingency plan in the event of a school delay, early dismissal, or cancellation and discuss it with your child. 

Parents are reminded that regardless of the exact timing of a storm occurring during the school day, the early dismissal schedule is as follows:

  • Elementary schools: 11:45am   
  • Middle schools: 11:00am
  • High schools: 10:30am

These early dismissal times will not vary. There are multiple information sources that will provide you with changes to the school day including:
