Guidance for Virtual and Hybrid Learning During

Inclement Weather

December 16, 2020

 

Virtual instruction; Buildings open 90 minute late,

Code Blue

This option will include minor weather events that may require a late arrival to buildings.   

Instruction: Virtual for all students
Meal service: Canceled
Buildings: Open 90-minutes late
Athletics & extracurricular activities: As scheduled, unless otherwise noted

Virtual instruction begins on time.  Ten-month staff work remotely.  School buildings open 90-minutes late.  Central office is open on-time.  Twelve-month, non-school based Support Unit I, II, and III members report no later than (60) minutes after their regular start time.

Virtual Instruction; Buildings Closed

This option will include weather events that may have closed school in years past. 

Instruction: Virtual for all students
Meal Service: Canceled
Buildings: Closed
Athletics & extracurricular activities: Canceled

Virtual instruction begins on time.  All staff work remotely at their regularly scheduled time, unless given different instructions by their supervisor.  Essential personnel may still be required to be on site and should contact their supervisor. 

 

No Instruction; Buildings Closed; Code Red

This option mirrors a typical inclement weather day when schools and offices are closed. This decision may be implemented at times of widespread internet or power outages when virtual instruction is not feasible. These days would potentially need to be made up at the end of the school year.

Instruction: Canceled
Meal Service: Canceled
Buildings: Closed
Athletics & extracurricular activities: Canceled

Essential personnel may still be required to be on site and should contact their supervisor. 

Early Dismissal

This option would be implemented when an unexpected weather event occurs while students are in school buildings (small groups, hybrid, etc.). During an early closing, instruction would end early for all students, including those learning virtually.

Instruction: Virtual and in-person ends early
Meal Service: May end early
Buildings: Closed early for all
Athletics: Canceled

All staff shall be permitted to leave the building (15) minutes after the departure of the last school bus provided that there is available coverage by administration for students who remain in the building.  Essential personnel may still be required to be on site and should contact their supervisor.
