Inclement Weather and School Closings

Inclement Weather and School Closure

When it comes to severe weather and the potential for a school closure, I know that the sooner the decision is made the better for staff, students, and parents.

Typically, we make a decision to close for inclement weather collectively with Brandywine and Buchanan. Our goal is to make this decision before 6:00am.

Once the decision is made, we alert the television stations, post the information on social media and on our website, and send out an announcement through School Messenger to phone numbers and email addresses you have designated in the School Messenger system. 

I’m sorry for any inconvenience a snow day may create. I will continue to make the decision based on the safety of our children and staff.


Dr. Dan Applegate, Superintendent
