With the onset of winter, I need to bring you up to date on our emergency closing of school procedures due to weather. When a weather emergency arises before the school day begins and it is determined to be in the best interest of the health, safety and welfare of students to close the schools, the schools will be closed for the day. The main determining factor if we have school is if we are able to safely run our school buses and get the majority of our students to school safely. As we have done in the past, if we are able to safely run our buses in Glenrock and Rolling Hills, the schools will be open. In the event we need to cancel school, we will contact the local TV and radio stations and inform them that schools are closed. Please do not call the schools or bus garage personnel, because these individuals will be busy on the phones contacting other school personnel. Please listen to the TV and radio stations listed below for information relating to the closing of school.
If it becomes necessary to close the schools during the school day, I will contact the building principals. Local TV and radio stations listed below will be notified. Students will be released to parents or guardians only, unless written parental authorization permits releasing them to someone other than parents/guardians.
Bus drivers will make every effort to see that pupils taken home earlier than usual can get into their homes or the home of a nearby friend if parents are not home.
If students would have to be kept at school for a prolonged period of time (overnight), then the principal of each school will be responsible for making appropriate food and sleeping arrangements for the welfare of each student if needed.
