Due to inclement weather, transportation services are cancelled today, Thursday, February 23, 2023. Schools remain open to students.
Families have the final say over whether or not their children should attend school when we’re experiencing challenging weather conditions. Students not attending school due to inclement weather will not be coded as absent or be penalized in any way, but we do ask families to let the school know if your child will not be attending or will be arriving late.
You can find information about winter inclement weather and school transportation cancellations on our website.
