Board Policies


Adoption Date: 06/22/2021

Revision History: 05/24/22 (reviewed), 4/11/23 (reviewed)

The final judgment as to when conditions are unsafe to operate will be made by the superintendent or designee. The superintendent or designee will be assisted by the actual "on location" reports of the drivers.

Several drivers each year will be specially designated to report weather and road conditions by bus radio when requested to do so. Other employees and students will be notified by commercial radio when school is cancelled or temporarily delayed. When school is cancelled because of weather anywhere in the school district, all schools will be closed.

When weather conditions deteriorate during the day after school has begun, cancellation notices will be announced by commercial radio. Students will be returned to their regular drop-off sites unless weather conditions prevent it. In that case, students will be kept at or returned to school until they are picked up by the parents.
