This Is A Stressful Time!

Dear Parents,

     I know you all have many questions and concerns.  So do we!  This is unfamiliar ground for all of us.  The one thing I am very sure of, is that we are all in this together, and together we will get trough it!

     I want to assure all of you that we have a dedicated superintendent and school board.  There have been many sleepless nights.  The main concern for USD 365 Administration, School Board, and Staff is your children and their education.

     Next week, March 23 – 27, will be a week of meetings, planning, and preparing, for how we will best accomplish this task.  Parents will be notified of the plan for your building.  Each building will have a plan, one that is best for their students.

     We ask for your support and patience as we move through this.  I have no doubt that we will get through it, and with your support, the children will recieve continuous learning.

Mrs. Alford – Principal

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

USD #365 INCLEMENT WEATHER

 

In most cases, the decision USD #365 will be faced with will be to either close school for a day or decide that conditions allow for school to be in session. However, occasionally the district may choose to delay the start of the school day by two hours.

  • NEW! TWO-HOUR DELAYED START OPTION DURING INCLEMENT WEATHER


USD #365 has a new option for inclement weather days: two-hour delayed start. The two-hour delayed start may be used when temporary adverse weather conditions exist, including extreme wind-chill conditions or unfavorable road conditions. Two-hour delayed starts maximize instructional time with students rather than closing for the entire day.


In the event of a two-hour delayed start, all school start times will be delayed by two hours. All morning bus pick-up times will also be delayed by two hours. Schools will end their day at the regular time and after-school bus routes will operate on their normal schedule.

 

  • IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR A TWO-HOUR DELAYED START
    • Transportation
      • All morning bus routes run two hours later than normally scheduled. This means if your child is typically picked up at 7 a.m., they will now board the bus at 9 a.m.
      • There will be NO pre-school.
    • Before the school day
      • Breakfast will not be served at schools on two hour delayed start days.
      • No athletic or activity practices before school.
    • School day
      • All field trips leaving before noon are cancelled.
      • All pre-school classes are cancelled.
  • TWO-HOUR DELAYED START FAQS
    • When will you make the announcement?
      • Our goal is to announce delays and closures by 6:00 a.m.  USD #365 will make an attempt to announce two-hour delayed starts or closure the evening before, if possible. Families will receive an “School Messenger Announcement” alerting them to delayed starts and school cancellations.  Information will also be posted on the USD #365 Facebook, and area Television and Radio stations.
    • Why didn’t USD #365 make the same decision as another school district?
      • Weather conditions vary across the area, and one district may be more affected by bad weather than a neighboring district. Conditions can vary even within USD #365, which spans over 400 square miles.
    • Can I choose to keep my child home from school on a delayed start day?
      • If families choose to keep their child home on a delayed start day, they should report the absence in the normal manner
