Emergency School Closing Procedures Emergency school closing procedures

 

With winter weather approaching, the pos­sibility of school closings is upon us. Closings due to inclement weather or other emergencies are broadcast on all local radio and television stations. We ask that parents avoid calling the schools or stations since incoming calls tie up phones and delay notification.

 

Decisions on whether or not to close schools due to snow or extreme cold are often difficult since forecasts about if and when bad weather will arrive are often inaccurate. Periodically, forecasts are definitive enough that school can be called off in time for the nightly news. Most of the time, however, the decision is based on reports from district supervisors who are assigned the task of driving our roads between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. on the days that bad weather is forecast. We attempt to contact all TV stations as early as we can so that parents can get the information they need in a timely manner.

 

In addition to snow, wind chill factors can also be a determining factor. A wind chill of more than 15 degrees below zero brings consideration for closing school due to the large number of students that wait outdoors for buses in our district. Safety is our greatest concern! The most difficult situation is when bad weather arrives immediately after the decision is made to keep schools open. In such cases, we respect the right of parents to make their own decisions based on neighborhood road and weather conditions. If it becomes necessary to make up school days, the school calendar may be amended using hours at the end of the school year.

 

An additional tool called Black Board Connect may also be used to contact parents who are part of that system. If you did not sign-up for the Black Board Connect system please contact your child’s principal for details. 

Two-Hour Delay Procedures (if Needed)

Dear Crestwood Families,

 

 

Living in Northeastern Ohio presents our school district with many challenges dealing with adverse weather. Often, severe conditions at 6:00 am are much improved one or two hours later making it safe to continue school activities. With this being said - our school district may use the option of a two-hour delay start to the school day for inclement weather or other emergencies.  By using the “two-hour delay”, we may be able to have school and avoid making up any school hours.

The need to close or delay the opening of our schools for the safety of students and staff is a decision we take very seriously. We understand students are better served both academically and socially by being in school, however, student and staff welfare is our top priority.

The following procedures will be implemented for a two-hour delay start situation:

 

 

Two-Hour Delay Procedures (if Needed)

The superintendent, in conjunction with other school officials, will strive to make a decision by 6:00am to either close or delay the opening of school and will announce it to the radio and television media and send out a Blackboard Connect message as in the past.

When a two-hour delay announcement is made, continue to listen to the radio and television for updated information. If conditions deteriorate, a decision will be made to close school for the day by 7:45 A.M. and you will receive a Blackboard Connect call.
