Message from the Superintendent

Calamity Day Procedures

With winter upon us, we are often asked how we make the decision to close school and how will that be communicated. Please see the answers to those questions below:

When there are circumstances that could lead to the cancellation of school, we try to make that decision as early as possible so parents can plan. We don’t always have the information necessary to make those decisions as early as we would like, but we try to communicate prior to busses leaving to pick up students at 6:00AM. In any case, our goal is to communicate as early as possible. Below are ways to stay informed:

1. Follow @MikeLaubAvon on Twitter. The school cancellation will be posted there first.
2. Always check the homepage on the website. As long as there is power, we post to the website before sending out any other notification. Don’t forget to refresh the page if you are leaving it open and waiting for an update.
3. Have up to date information in PowerSchool by contacting your child’s school office. Our automated phone messaging system pulls phone numbers from that information to make the calls. Emails are also pulled from the same place. If you would like a text message as well, text the word “join” to 56360.
4. After sending an alert message, we contact the local television stations. We contact channel 3, 5, 8 and 19 (in that order).
5. Sign up for enews by going to our homepage on the bottom left of the screen. You should know that enews is used regularly by the district and does not immediately send. There is typically a delay based on the volume of subscribers, but it is a nice way to stay up to date on what is happening at each school. School closings are also sent through enews.

Please note that the automated phone messaging system can be used for different types of notifications, so always be sure to listen to the message when it arrives. We hope to expand our use of that system as we become more familiar with its features.

Student safety always comes first. If we feel it is unsafe for our students to come to school, we will cancel. That being said, it is always our goal to find a way to get students here so teaching and learning can take place.

As always, if there are any questions/concerns, please call or email.
Thank you.
