School Closing Procedure
When it becomes necessary to close school due to inclement weather, parents and students are asked to listen to any of the following stations:
· TV: Channel 4, WCCO; Channel 5, KSTP; Channel 9, KMSP-FOX; or Channel 11, KARE.
· RADIO: WWLC 104.9, WXCE 1260, WCCO 830, WJMC 1240/96.3, WAQE 1090/97.7, WAXX/WAYY 104.5/790, and WWIB 103.7.
Closures in the morning are usually done prior to 6:15 a.m., with all radio and television stations notified immediately.
When it becomes necessary to dismiss school early, parents are asked to monitor these same stations. A dismissal time will be provided, so that parents are able to tell approximately when to expect their children at home.
Please make sure the school has been provided ahead of time with the information needed to get your children to the proper place, should it be different than the normal destination.
The phone lines can become jammed with parents trying to call in while students are trying to call out to determine the best course of action.
We need to know this plan in advance.
