Welcome back and Happy New Year 2018. I would again like to extend our deepest sympathies for the Williams family and friends. The High School guidance counselors, administration, and teachers are available for students as they continue to cope with this loss.

Lastly, as we continue into the harsh winter we are experiencing, I would like to outline our school cancellation procedures. When there is a potential school cancellation or two-hour delay, administrators attempt to make a decision by 6am. The all-call system, District website, Twitter, and Facebook pages are updated immediately and local media outlets are notified. Two-hour delay schedules are available on each school's website. The District's #1 priority is always the safety of the students, and decisions on school closings are based on this priority. If you have questions concerning the school cancellation policy, contact the Board Office at 440-355-2424.
