Weather Related Delay or Cancellation of School

With winter weather arriving, it is important for parents and students to be aware of our procedure for the delay or cancellation of school.

Two-Hour Delay: beginning this year, we are implementing a two-hour delay to be used on days in which we get hit with bad weather, but the weather is moving through relatively quickly. It will be a straight two-hour delay for all students across the district. Busses will arrive two hours later than normal, and school will begin exactly two hours later than normal.

School Closing: when school is canceled for the day, all practices and events at the elementary buildings, Pfeiffer, and Edison are canceled. Perry High School events and practices may or may not be canceled, depending on the weather and road conditions throughout the day. There will be no events or practices earlier than noon. District and high school administration will determine if practices and events may occur during the afternoon and/or evening. The district website will be updated throughout the day. (more…)
