Inclement Weather Policy

All public schools in Conway Springs will be closed on days when roads, school parking lots, and/or school driveways/walkways are considered to be unsafe for school bus transportation. The decision to close is made by the Superintendent of Schools as early as possible on the morning in question. In the vast majority of cases, this is prior to 6:00 a.m. This determination is made after consulting with the state police, the state and county highway departments, and other sources of information in different parts of the county.

Some weather conditions make it advisable to delay the opening time of schools.

Any change from the normal school schedule as a result of inclement weather – snow, ice, heat, etc. – will be communicated via the School Messenger rapid telephone notification system and on radio and television stations broadcast to the public. In addition, closings will be listed at the top of the home page of the USD356 web site at www.usd356.org

Parents have the right not to send their children to school if they feel travel conditions are unsafe. Children will be marked as absent for the time they are not in school.
