How to Get Information Regarding School Closures
Occasionally we are forced to cancel school or have an early closure due to weather or unforeseen circumstances. School closure announcements will be announced on KSKI and KECH radio stations as well as this website. In addition, you may receive calls, texts, or email by keeping your emergency information current in Skyward. Regular dismissal routines will be followed unless specified differently on the emergency closure form. Please consider that the telephones may not be working. It is vital that your child is aware of his/her emergency closure plan.
How cold does it have to be before we close school?
If the temperature is between 15-20 degrees below zero, the district will consider delaying and or cancelling school. Please keep in mind that temperatures vary throughout Blaine County and that there are many factors to consider when making the decision to delay or cancel school.
How will parents be notified of a school closure?
In the event that school needs to be delayed or cancelled we will notify KECH/KSKI radio and other local media. We will also post information on our website and Facebook in addition to sending a Skylert to parents, staff and students.
What is Skylert?
Skylert is the notification system throughSkyward. It can be sent via email, text, phone call, or all three. Parents have complete control over what phone or email they want as a contact. It is important to update your contact information in Skyward to make sure it's accurate. If you need help doing this, please contact your school secretary. Please note that we will only notify parents and staff if and when we have a delay or closure.
