cold weather & snowflake

In the winter, it's not unusual for temperatures in eastern Idaho to dip well below zero, and reach as low as 20 below with the wind chill factor. Occasionally, these cold temperatures and other severe weather conditions make it necessary to close schools for the safety of our students. The Superintendent makes the decision to close school by 6:30 a.m. based on the best information available. The Superintendent considers early morning temperatures, the day’s forecasted temperatures, wind chill and other factors. Parents always have the right to decide what is best for their family and can keep their children home if they believe the weather is too severe for them to attend school.
