EMERGENCY CLOSURE INFORMATION

Icy, snow packed, and/or flooded roads or other unsafe conditions may make it necessary to close schools, delay the beginning of a school day, or alter bus routes.

School District and transportation officials will check roads early each morning when conditions warrant.  We will make every effort to have decisions made by 5:30 a.m. to enable stations to make the necessary announcements. Most local radio and television stations will carry emergency information.

One of the following decisions will be announced:

1. SCHOOL CLOSURE  
Classes will not be held and buses will not run. All extra-curricular activities and practices are cancelled.

2. ONE-HOUR DELAY
Morning bus runs will be delayed one hour, as will the start of school. Morning kindergarten classes will be held.

3. TWO-HOUR DELAY
Morning bus runs will be delayed two hours, as will the start of school. Morning kindergarten classes will be canceled.

4. SNOW ROUTES
Some roads will not be traveled.
If snow routes are used in the morning, those same routes will be used in the afternoon.

5. ONE-HOUR DELAY/SNOW ROUTES
Morning bus runs will be delayed one hour, as will the start of school, and some routes will be altered.  Morning kindergarten classes will be held.

6. TWO-HOUR DELAY/SNOW ROUTES
Morning bus runs will be delayed two hours, as will the start of school, and some routes will be altered.  Morning kindergarten classes will be canceled.

When the decision is made to utilize "snow routes" it will be determined whether or not to use regular or modified snow routes. The snow routes for each level are as follows:

SNOW ROUTES

*When the decision is made to utilize "snow routes" the buses will not travel on the following roads: 

Barnhart Road May Road
Bridlewood Drive McTimmonds Road
Burbank Road Mistletoe Road
Clay Street (West of Oregon Avenue) Oak Villa Road
Cooper Hollow Road Oakdale Road
Ferns Corner Road Orchard Knob Road
Fir Grove Road Pedee Creek Road
Frost Road Pioneer Road
Gage Road Reuben Boise Road
James Howe Road Robb Mill Road
Kerber Road Shady Lane
Liberty Road (North of Falls City Highway) South Church Street
 

Teal Creek Road

  West Ellendale (West of water treatment plant)

At times our higher elevations take longer to clear, but the buses can safely travel some of the lower or more heavily traveled roads.  When this is the case we will report modified snow routes.  When modified snow routes are posted, buses will not travel on:

Barnhart Road                                                              McTimmonds Road
Burbank Road                                                               Oakdale Road
Cooper Hollow Road                                                     Orchard Knob Road
Ferns Corner Road                                                        Pedee Creek Road
Fir Grove Road                                                             Pioneer Road
Frost Road                                                                    Reuben Boise Road
Gage Road                                                                    Shady Lane
James Howe Road                                                        Teal Creek Road
Kerber Road                                                                 West Ellendale (west of water treatment plant)
Liberty Road (north of Falls City Hwy)

 

                                     
Additionally, it may be necessary to send students home from school early due to the threat of severe weather or other emergencies.  Parents should select a "second home" (preferably a neighbor) where their son or daughter may stay in the event they are away from home.

In any emergency, the Superintendent, or designee, will decide whether or not students should be sent home.  The decision may be to send them home immediately, or to keep them in the schools indefinitely under continuous supervision until the emergency has passed.  Should the students be held in their respective buildings, parents may pick up their children at school.
