Severe Weather - Be Ready
Message from the Superintendent of Schools:During any impending or unsafe weather condition that may result in a delay, early release, or cancellation of school, the decision will be communicated to families immediately.Your safety is our top priority, and we will make decisions based on your wellbeing within the safest operations of the school. Outside of school, your immediate family comes first and during times of an emergency, we also encourage you to check on neighbors, extended family, and friends, especially those who may be sick, incapacitated, or elderly.We appreciate all the support from our community and partnering agencies, such as the American Red Cross, Department of Social Services, the Caldwell County Health Department, local law enforcement, and the emergency services for their coordinated efforts to ensure that residents in Caldwell County are assisted and notified during emergencies. The school district values its close relationship with each of these agencies, and we support their day-to-day efforts in keeping families safe and secure.With great appreciation,Dr. Don Phipps
