Bus Cancellations and School Closures

Schools remain open if buses are cancelled

Occasionally, a school-based or system-wide shutdown occurs due to inclement weather, particularly during winter. (See below for information about how the decision is made.) It's easy to find out if your school is closed by checking our website, Twitter account or Facebook page, as well as local media in your area.

Sometimes, inclement weather causes the cancellation of bus transportation. But that doesn't mean your school will be closed. It's important to remember that, in most cases, schools remain open for students to attend when school buses are cancelled. Parents/guardians may drop off/pick up their children unless there has been a notification of a school or system-wide shutdown. It is not an expectation that parents transport their children on such days. It will not negatively affect students' attendance record if they do not attend on inclement weather days.

The safety of our students, parents/guardians and community members remains our most important priority. Please monitor road and weather conditions carefully before deciding to travel during periods of inclement weather.
