Learn more about severe weather and other emergencies that could alter our regular school schedule.

Throughout a school year there may be times when we are forced to make changes to our regular schedule to keep our students safe. These adjustments could include a delay, closure or early release.

School could be cancelled or schedules altered if:

  • A building is deemed unsafe (ex. Gas leak)

  • Buses won’t start or run dependably.

  • Local road conditions in our neighborhoods are dangerous or impassable.

  • Bus riders face dangerous conditions while waiting for the bus.

Parents and guardians always have the choice to keep their children home if they feel the weather conditions are unsafe. We just ask you contact the school to notify them of your child's absence.


Should a decision be made that will impact the school day, you will receive an automated phone message and email from the district as early as possible. Information will be posted on our district and school websites and on the district’s Facebook and Twitter feeds.

You can also listen and watch for an announcement on any of the local television stations (WCCO Channel 4, KSTP Channel 5, FOX Channel 9, and KARE 11). 

Planning for an emergency

Please discuss with your child what to do in the event that school is dismissed early and no one is home when he/she arrives.
