Late Start Policy

With winter weather in the future, we wanted to update you on our Late Start Policy.

In the case of inclement weather, we could incorporate a late start to school when we feel it would be safe to do so.


Here are some important facts about late starts:


We will do a School Messenger announcement letting you know how many hours we will delay the start of the school day. For example, If we delay for two hours, then school would begin at 10:15 a.m.


Radio stations and KTVO will be informed of our late start time.


If school is started two hours late, the bus will run two hours behind its regular schedule. For example, if your child(ren) normally gets picked up at 7:15 a.m., they would get picked up at about 9:15 a.m.


Soar will continue with its regular hours.


Students should not come to school until the delay is over or 20 minutes before school starts. For example, if we had a two-hour delay, students could start arriving at 9:55 a.m.


Breakfast will still be available for students on a late start.


The school day will conclude at the regular time. (3:25 p.m.)


You can stay up to date with everything school-related on our website and social media outlets as well.
