When do we cancel school because of Weather???

Parents & Patrons:

We are quickly approaching that time of year when the possibility of school cancellations increase due to adverse winter conditions.  The decision to cancel school is always carefully examined before the final decision is made.  School district officials directly check and monitor roadway conditions, they contact local agencies {KDOT, Wab. Co. Transportation Dept., local law enforcement, etc..} for road conditions reports, keep updated from local weather reports as to current & future weather conditions, and communicate with other local school districts.

USD 330 Mission Valley is approximately 400 square miles with land in four counties.  Due to the large area that the district covers; the road and weather conditions can vary greatly across the district.  Roads may be treacherous in one area of the district and safe in other areas, however, the determination for school closure is based off of the area that is impacted the most.  We recognize the fact that cancelling school can create challenges for parents who need to find care for their child(ren), however, the safety of the students will come first.

If a decision cannot be made the night before then it is our goal to have a decision made in the mornings by 5:30 a.m.   If adverse weather occurs during the school day and school needs to be dismissed early we will send out a notification at least 1 hour before dismissal.  It is important to make sure that your child’s contact information is updated so that we have the most recent information.

If it is decided to cancel school we will immediately send an automated call through School Messenger. School closure information will also be sent to local t.v. and radio stations, as well as, USD 330 district website, Facebook, and Twitter. School closure information will be broadcasted on the following:  (TV Stations:  Channels 13, 27, and 49) (Radio Stations: 580 WIBW-AM, 104.9 FM, 94.5 Country, Country Legends 106.9).

ALL SCHOOL ACTIVITIES will be cancelled or postponed when school is closed for dangerous road conditions, except for unique situations authorized by the district office.

We greatly appreciate your continued patience and understanding when school cancellation is required.
