District Procedures for Inclement Weather Conditions
From time to time, inclement weather conditions or equipment malfunctions can interfere with the school schedule. It is not unusual for Triad schools to close due to inclement weather based on the fact that the majority of our students are transported on buses. Even smaller amounts of snow when combined with high winds pose real problems in terms of drifting in the rural areas of Marine, St. Jacob, and Troy.
Once the students are in attendance, Triad schools rarely dismiss early because of inclement weather. In the event that weather conditions deteriorate quickly or equipment malfunctions happen during the school day, the district may be forced to dismiss early in the best interest of the safety of your child(ren). If this happens, the district will activate the parent notification system to contact parents by phone, email and text messaging. We strongly encourage parents to have a current phone number and e-mail address (that is easily accessible) in our school database system. We also recommend having a plan in place for your child if your child were to arrive home early. On extremely poor weather days, it has been past practice to begin the longer bus routes earlier than normal, so that students will arrive home as close to their regular time as possible. In the event that weather conditions are deteriorating rapidly, parents may pick up their child(ren) early from school.
Here are the numerous ways parents can expect information regarding the closing of school or an early dismissal:
Please contact your student's school secretary right away if unsure about the contact information we have on file regarding your child.
