Preparing for Severe Weather Conditions
The decision to delay the start of school, release students early or cancel school due to impending or unsafe weather conditions will be made as soon as possible and communicated to families immediately. Safety is a top priority, and we will make these decisions based on the well-being, safety and protection of students and staff.The school district works closely with local emergency agencies, such as law enforcement, Caldwell County Emergency Management, the American Red Cross and other family support services to coordinate a response during severe weather conditions. We are committed to ensuring that schools and residents in Caldwell County are promptly assisted and notified. The school district collaborates regularly with these agencies on many different countywide needs, and we are unilaterally ready to respond.If school is not in session because a severe weather event has occurred, we encourage parents to address the needs of their immediate family first and then, if conditions allow, to check on neighbors, extended family, and friends, especially those who may be sick or elderly. Together, we can become more aware of how to be better prepared and responsive in keeping families and communities safe and secure.
