EBCE School Closing and Cancellations

Code: EBCE


The Superintendent is authorized to close the district schools or to dismiss them early in the event of hazardous weather or other emergencies which threaten the health or safety of students and staff. In making the decision to close school, the Superintendent or his designee will consider many factors, including the following major ones relating to the safety and health of children: 

1.        Weather conditions, both existing and predicted.

2.        Actual occurrence or imminent possibility of an emergency condition which would make the operation of schools difficult or dangerous. 

3.    Inability of teaching personnel to report for duty, which might result in inadequate supervision of students.
