Inclement Weather Notice

Please Note:

As a result of the ninth (9th) unplanned missed school day on Wednesday, February 27th, school will be in session on Friday, March 22nd (originally no school for spring break) to ensure the last day of the 2018-2019 school year is on Friday, June 7th.

Secondly, the last day for 3rd quarter will be on Friday, March 22nd and will be an early dismissal for staff professional development (2.5 hours early).  Thursday, March 21st will be a full day (regular schedule).
 
If we are forced to miss a tenth (10th) day, it will be forgiven by the Missouri Department of Education.  If  we are forced to miss an eleventh (11th) day, it will be made up on Monday, March 25th.  If a twelfth (12th) day is necessary, it will be forgiven by the Missouri Department of Education.  If a thirteenth (13th) day is necessary, it will be made up on Friday, April 19th.  A fourteenth (14th) day and beyond will be forgiven.  
 
Regardless, the last day of the 2018-2019 school year will be on Friday, June 7th (early dismissal).

As of 2/21, inclement weather has resulted in eight (8) school cancellations for the 2018-19 school year. Due to the number of cancellations this year and the uniqueness of our late start to the school year, at last night's Board of Education Meeting, the Board authorized district administration authority to adjust the 2018-19 school calendar to ensure that the last day of school is no later than June 7, 2019, if further inclement weather occurs. With this recommendation, the Board forgave day 175 of the school calendar for students and for all staff without 12-month contracts.  A consideration when making this recommendation to the Board were the results of the 2018-2019 Inclement Weather Survey shared with parents/guardians, students, and staff on Tuesday, February 12, 2019. The survey response rate was 33.2%. The survey results are available here.

 

As a result of the Board’s action, the last day of school will be June 7, 2019. The last day of school will be an early dismissal for all students. If there are additional inclement weather days,  the make-up days will occur in the following order: Friday, March 22, Monday, March 25, and Friday, April 19.

  • If we miss a 9th day, it will be made up on Friday, March 22

  • If we miss a 10th day, it will be forgiven by DESE

  • If we miss an 11th day, it will be made up on Monday, March 25th

  • If we miss a 12th day, it will be forgiven by DESE

  • If we miss a 13th day, it will be made up on Friday, April 19th

  • If we miss 14 or more days, these days will ALL be forgiven
