Absence Because of Adverse Weather Conditions

If the schools are open but parents believe that their child's normal route to school is unsafe, parents should keep their child at home.

All principals are instructed that students shall be given an "excused absence" if kept home because either transportation was unavailable or, in the judgment of the parents, the walk was not safe.

Elementary and Middle School parents should explain this in a note to the principal following the student's return to school, and should then contact the school to see that the child makes up work missed.

High School parents should call the attendance office rather than send a written note.
