Inclement Weather ProcedurePublished by lindsey.hughes on Thu, 12/07/2017 - 10:04
Throughout the winter months, there is an increased possibility of school disruptions due to inclement weather. This post is intended to give you a brief overview of what to expect during an inclement weather event.
Some have asked what Nebo School District's procedure is regarding inclement weather. Simply put, Nebo School District will be open and functioning normally throughout the winter unless parents/guardians and employees are notified otherwise.
The decision to cancel or delay the start of school is a very complicated process. Nebo School District is a large district covering over 1,300 square miles. Conditions in one area of the district can be very different from conditions in another part of the district. Weather is unpredictable and can change quickly.
On occasion, weather may be so extreme the district may close schools or implement a Delayed Start. If a Delayed Start is called at your particular school, a notice will be sent via phone, text, or email and your school's starting time will be postponed for two hours. Although the start time will be delayed two hours, we will work to ensure that the school itself will be open by the regular start time in order to accommodate working parents and students that arrive early.
Unfortunately, experience has taught us that there is no single decision that will accommodate the desires of every patron and employee. That being the case, Nebo District is supportive of individual decisions regarding safe travel during inclement weather. Please evaluate your individual situation regarding travel to school. The option to keep children home when weather conditions are severe is always at the parents' discretion and schools have been asked to respect and honor parent decisions. Make-up schoolwork may be necessary, but schools will accommodate students on the timely completion of required assignments or tests.
If you have questions regarding the status of your school during inclement weather, please visit our website at www.nebo.edu. You will find a link on the left side of the home page that will take you to our Inclement Weather page. We plan to post inclement weather decisions on our site no later than 6:30 a.m. on the morning of the event.
Thank you for your support of our district and your local schools. Working together we can make this a better world for the students of Nebo School District.
