Severe Weather Closure Information

Emergencies such as snow, ice, and power outages can alter school schedules and affect bus transportation for students.  During inclement weather, the Superintendent, in cooperation with KWRL and local authorities, closely monitors road and weather conditions with the safety of students as a first priority.  In the event of inclement weather, every effort is made to make a decision to close or delay school by 5:30 a.m., followed by an announcement to our district families via Flash Alert, School Messenger, our district website, and Vancouver/Portland area radio and TV stations beginning at 6:00 a.m.

One-Hour Late Start

Schools and offices will open one-hour late.  Scheduled bus transportation will arrive one-hour late.  For detailed information regarding bus transportation, including snow routes and bus schedules, please visit or call (360) 841-2023.

Two-Hour Late Start

All schools and offices will open a total of two-hours late.   Scheduled bus transportation will arrive two-hours late.  For detailed information on bus transportation, including snow routes and bus schedules, please visit or call (360) 841-2023.

2-Hour Late Start times (INCLUDING WEDNESDAYS) are as follows:

High School and Elementary School  10:15am

Middle School: 10:25am

Important Notice:  When a Late-Start Announcement is made, families are encouraged to continue to monitor all means of communication in the event that unforeseen deteriorating weather conditions warrant a school closure.  If a decision is made to change the school schedule from a delayed opening to a closure, an announcement will be made via School Messenger, Flash Alert, our district website and local TV and radio stations.
