The first measurable snow has fallen so it’s a perfect time to grab a hot cocoa and review inclement weather information. Whether it’s bitterly cold or snowflakes are falling, don’t leave the safety of the house before checking emails, texts, and voicemails from the district. Depending on when weather will hit, decisions could be made the night before or early the next morning. Cancellations or delays might also be posted on social media, but please double-check it is a verified account.
The district will consider these three options during inclement weather:
- A Remote Learning (e-Learning) Day
- There are no set zoom times on remote learning days. Students may do the work at his/her own time and pace.
- Teachers have directed students where to find their remote assignments, most likely, on Google Classroom.
- Teachers will be available by email for questions and help throughout the day.
- For every snow day, an extra day will be given for the work to be completed. We understand students’ situations vary on snow days. They will have time beyond the snow day to complete their work.
- Teachers are asked to consider the time commitment of students with a full course load and keep the entire amount of time to complete all of the coursework for a full course load to 4 hours or less for high school students.
- A Two Hour Late Start
Two-hour late starts can be very beneficial to let the sun come up, the roads warm up, and to avoid rush hour traffic. Buses will run two hours late. Millard Academy students should not report to their academy but instead, go to their home school. Students will report at 10 am. Check out the full schedule here.
- A Canceled Day (aka, traditional “snow day”)
- On a day when school is canceled, schools are closed and no work is assigned.
