E-learning Day

Moving to an e-learning day or canceling/closing school is a complicated decision that affects students, staff, and families. We do everything possible to keep schools open.

The primary criteria we consider when making a decision include:

  • The safety and well-being of students and staff

  • The severity of the weather (extreme cold, flooding, etc.)

  • Timing of weather (overnight, weekend, etc.)

  • The ability of buses and cars to travel safely

  • Member districts’ decisions to move to e-learning or close

Winter Weather

District administrators consider the combined effects of snow, ice, wind chill, and other weather indicators when determining if school will be held as usual. If the National Weather Service predicts the wind chill to remain at or drop below -35ºF (below zero), school may move to an e-learning day. We attempt to make the decision in the early morning hours after surveying conditions, monitoring weather reports, and consulting with transportation vendors.
