Winter Weather Alerts and School Delay & Closure
As we head into colder months, we want to remind you again about planning for winter weather, and how we communicate school delays and closures.
When we are expecting snow or inclement weather, a Central Office team continually monitors conditions across the District. That includes having staff drive some of the streets that are typically more treacherous in snow and ice. After consulting with other agencies, we decide whether to delay school by two hours or if a closure is necessary. That decision is typically made by 5:30 a.m.
You can learn if there is a school delay or closure through:
· local TV and radio stations
· the District website at www.seattleschools.org
· an automated phone call you will receive
· Twitter @seapubschools
· the Public Schools Emergency Communications System at www.flashalert.net
You can also review the brochure from the Seattle Department of Transportation to help plan how to get around this winter when there are storms. There is a map of the city’s snow and ice response routes, a list of contacts that may help, and an explanation of what to expect, and how to prepare.The brochure is available on SDOT’s website.
