How and when will you find out if school is late or closed?
How does the school district decide whether to close or delay school?
Cashmere Transportation Director Rob Todd follows NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) for weather updates as well as the county for road conditions. He drives the our area to evaluate road conditions and contacts Superintendent Glenn Johnson by 5 AM. Superintendent Johnson makes the final decision as to whether schools stay on schedule, delay opening, or close. School closures must be made up later.
School delays and closures can impact a family’s schedule.
The decision to delay or close school is not taken lightly. We realize that it is disruptive for working parents that have to come up with a plan for the care of children. We recommend families of young children develop a backup plan in the event that schools are delayed or closed.
