When winter weather arrives, schools may be closed or delayed or buses may use snow routes. These decisions are made districtwide and are the same for each of our Creswell SD schools.
Typically, weather-related school schedule decisions are made in the early morning, before school, when current weather conditions can be assessed. We believe students and families are best served when we are open. Our main concern and the reason for any school closure is the safety of our students and staff.
If the district decides to make a change to the school schedule or bus routes, it is communicated as quickly as possible in several ways, all well before 6:30 a.m.
- Sign up for alerts through the FlashAlert Notification System. (Link) FlashAlert will send you alerts via email and “push notifications” through a free phone app.
- Check our website.
- Tune in to local news media.
If schools and buses are on their regular schedule, there will NOT be an announcement.
When school is in session during wintry weather, families are encouraged to consider the road conditions in their areas, make their own decisions based on safety, and notify the school if their student will be staying home. Parents’ decisions about student absences for hazardous weather safety reasons will be honored.
