The National Weather Service predicts a large, cold storm to impact the Wasatch Front in the next 24-48 hours. While we fully expect our schools to be open and functioning normally during this storm and throughout the winter, conditions can vary greatly in different neighborhoods and on different streets. We encourage parents to make attendance decisions for their children based on their specific ability to get to school safely.
Additionally, if your contact information has recently changed, please contact your local school with up to date information. This will enable the school and/or the district to notify you in the event of a late start or closure.
Again, we fully expect our schools to be open, but we will notify parents via the local media, this webpage, our social media sites, and possibly email if that changes. If you hear nothing, you can safely assume your school is open. If you are concerned about your child’s ability to safely travel to school, please exercise your parental discretion to make the decision that is best for your family’s safety.
