Inclement Weather Communications

How does the district decide to cancel or delay school for inclement weather?

Transportation personnel drive district roads and collect reports from all parts of the district early in the morning. We get reports from city, county, and Crooked River Ranch road departments. We also consider the day’s forecast, whether roads are safe and passable for buses, as well as for students and staff who drive to school. Road conditions can be vastly different within our district boundaries. Our buses travel as far as Alfalfa, Crooked River Ranch, and Tumalo.

Who decides?

The Assistant Superintendent of Operations makes a recommendation to the Superintendent, who also confers with the other regional superintendents. Decisions are typically made by 5 a.m., and must be made before our first buses are scheduled to leave the transportation department.

Delay or cancel?

The district may opt for a two-hour delay if the weather is expected to improve but drive times may be slow, or if road maintenance crews need more time to clear roads for safe travel.

School will be cancelled for the day if the weather is predicted to be so adverse that safe driving conditions are not foreseeable.

We always try to avoid canceling school midday.

How will I know?

Notification of inclement weather delays or cancellations will be sent out to families directly through ParentSquare via an alert that overrides digest settings, so that notifications are delivered instantly. Information will also be posted on the district website and Facebook page.
