Weather Delayed Dismissal

Weather Delayed Dismissal Procedure

In the event of thunderstorms, students will not be dismissed when lightning is indicated within a six-mile radius of the school until 30 minutes have passed from the last strike within the radius.

  • Busses won't be loaded.
  • Car riders, bikers, and walkers will not be released.
  • An adult may go inside to retrieve a child. However, the adult must be on the student's Emergency Data Card and have a valid ID.
  • Buses will be loaded and students released when the weather has cleared.

Parents are notified of delayed dismissal via the Skylert automated phone system.

During the delayed dismissal (30/30), parents may pick up their children. To expedite this process, we will create a parent-student pick-up center in our cafeteria.

Parents who want to pick up students must enter the school through the cafeteria lobby door. This door is located on the east side of campus by the car loop.

Parents must fill out the “Parent Pick Up Waiver” and present identification to our staff. After the staff confirms parent is on the emergency contact list, the student will be called from the gym to come to the cafeteria.

While parents are waiting, they can sit in the cafeteria. Please know that this process may take several minutes due to the volume of students being picked up.

After student is with parent in the cafeteria, parent and student will exit the cafeteria via the patio door. Please have the “Parent Pick Up Waiver” available to provide our staff member upon exit.

Make sure your phone number and email address is updated so you receive important Skylerts regarding delayed dismissals. Complete the Emergency Information Form and return to the front office.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during these uncommon events.
