Dear Parents and Families,

The District understands that the decision to remain open or close due to poor weather conditions has a big impact on our families, especially those with young students and inexperienced drivers. Although the Districts decision to remain open or close is made with the best of intentions, it can be an imperfect system due to the unpredictability and timing of inclement weather, and use of technology to communicate to our families. We have received several reports from family members who sometimes do not receive the One Call. We are working to resolve the issue and continue to reset the system trying to correct the errors. Please contact the District office if you do not receive a One Call. We are working with the service provider to resolve the issue.
