UPDATE: 10/21 – 10:59 A.M.
As the District continues to monitor weather conditions and power outages, we err on the side of caution and safety for our students.
The average temperature is 65 degrees, and there is natural light in most classrooms. If neighborhood schools are without power, we know homes in the community likely do not have power. Rather than dismissing early in the rain and risking students arriving to homes in the dark, we will keep students safe and supervised at school where they will be provided nutritious meals.
If there are changes to this plan, we will communicate developments throughout the day.
