Weather-related school and program closings

RPS bus along snowy city street Dear Families,

As we move from fall to winter it is a great time to remind us of our protocols for how we will handle issues related to weather and school/program closings. We aim to make weather-related decisions as quickly as possible and the following guidelines will be used as weather conditions allow:  

SCHOOLS: The superintendent will generally make the decision to close by 5 a.m. Our website, Facebook, and Twitter will announce these closings by 5:15 a.m. and all local news sources will be notified. You will be notified through a phone call and email, sent in English and Spanish, by 6 a.m.            

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS: The superintendent will generally make the decision to cancel afternoon programs by 1 p.m. Our website, Facebook, and Twitter will announce these closings by 1:15 p.m. and all local news sources will be notified. You will be notified through a phone call and email, sent in English and Spanish, by 1:30 p.m.

It is my hope that we will have a season of safe weather and our protocols will not need to be utilized. 

THANK YOU,
Steve Unowsky, Superintendent
