Severe Weather Information

Our school district will be using the ParentSquare system to notify all parents of any severe weather delays and school closings.

The following information will be important to you in determining your student’s school day status in weather emergency situations.  In the past there have been instances when school has been closed only to find that a short delay in the start could have changed circumstances dramatically.  In some circumstances, the school starting time will be delayed two (2) hours. This will give school officials additional time to evaluate weather and road conditions.  The media would be notified of a two-hour delay by 5:15 a.m. on the morning of the delay. The two-hour delay announcement could result in the following: 

  1. A second announcement by 7:30 a.m. closing school completely, or 
  2. An actual delay of school opening by two hours, meaning CEC students would report to school at 9 a.m.

During inclement weather, every effort will be made to keep school in session.  As always, our first concern is for the safety of students and employees. The District hopes this option will provide more safety for students and a better driving environment for our bus drivers.  

NOTE:  In the event of a school closing the Administration will make every possible attempt to make that decision the evening before.  If the decision is made the morning of the closing, the ParentSquare system will begin making calls to homes at 5:15 A.M.
