Winter Weather Delays and Closures

Now that the cold weather is here, we want to remind you about our procedures for delaying or canceling classes – and about how we communicate these decisions to families.

When the district is deciding whether to delay or cancel classes because of inclement weather, several factors are considered, including: 

  • Road conditions and the ability of buses, families and staff members to get to school safely. 
     
  • Ability of school district maintenance crews to clear parking lots, bus loops and sidewalks around the schools.
     
  • Worsening weather conditions and the forecast.

Timing of Delay or Closure Announcements

We make every effort to notify our community of a two-hour delay or closure by 6 a.m. As soon as a decision is made, information is posted on the district website at www.ksd.org. In most cases, if there is no notification by 6 a.m., classes will follow a regular schedule.

It is possible that a two-hour delay may change to a closure due to worsening road conditions. A final decision will be made by 7:30 a.m. If there is a change, an updated notification will be sent out.

School Alerts & Notifications

The school district sends out phone, email and text alerts to families when classes are canceled or delayed. Please make sure to update your information in your PowerSchool account so that you receive these important notifications.
